Sudan: ‘We had no time to bury them’: War crimes in Sudan’s Blue Nile state

Index Number: AFR 54/011/2013

Nearly two years after the outbreak of war between Sudanese government and rebel forces in Sudan’s Blue Nile state in September 2011, the government’s onslaught against the state’s civilian population continues. In what appears to be a concerted strategy to clear civilians from rebel-held areas of the state, the government has both attacked civilians and denied humanitarian groups access to help them. This report focuses on war crimes in Blue Nile state, while also addressing the problem of the increasing militarization of refugee camps by rebel forces in South Sudan.
