Sudan Government's solution: Janjawid unleashed in Darfur

, Index number: AFR 54/078/2006

This document urges that action be taken to protect civilians in Darfur. Brutal attacks on civilians by Janjawid nomad militia are taking place in many parts of Darfur. The attacks serve the Sudan government's strategic ends. Two years after the first UN Security Council resolution on Darfur grave violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law continue unabated in Darfur. They include mass forced displacement, unlawful killings, and looting of civilian property. Attacks directed at civilians violate the most basic rule of international humanitarian law. They constitute war crimes and can be crimes against humanity.
