From American Prospect Online:
"Sudan's central government may be orchestrating bloody attacks on humanitarian workers in Darfur...
"According to Eric Reeves... the central government in Khartoum has devised a policy of targeting foreign humanitarian workers in Darfur... Reeves cites well-placed intelligence sources and relays outrageous accusations by government officials that aid organizations are running guns for the rebels.
"Currently, an estimated 10,000 people die each month in Darfur... that rate could increase as much as tenfold should aid organizations be forced to evacuate."
Tomorrow, March 30, the U.N. Security Council is scheduled to vote on a resolution that would authorize an international court to investigate and prosecute the mass murder in Darfur. Human Rights First is campaigning on the issue.
