Sudan (Darfur) : 'When will they protect us?' Civilians trapped by violence in Sudan
Darfur today is a place of violence and terrifying insecurity. With weapons readily available, the population is trapped in a web of armed attacks that grows ever more complex. Paramilitary forces armed by the Sudanese government grow ever stronger while more and more armed opposition groups emerge. Fighting is often between groups - including ethnic groups - formerly on the same side. One thing has not changed: it is still civilians who pay the price.
