Sudan: Darfur: What hope for the future? Civilians in need of protection
This report considers five examples of attacks against civilians, in camps, villages or towns, during or since the signing of the humanitarian and security protocols between the government of Sudan and the armed opposition groups, the Sudan Liberation Army and the Justice and Equality Movement. Amnesty International is calling for the rapid implementation of the enhanced African Union Mission in Darfur (AMIS). The African Union monitors should take seriously their mandate to monitor and verify efforts of the government of Sudan to disarm Government-controlled militias. Amnesty International is also calling for an increase in the numbers of UN human rights monitors, who had been able to follow up on many cases of arrests and rape.
