Distro - Darfur
An unnatural disaster is devastating the Darfur region of Sudan, where civilians are fleeing in terror from government supported mass killings. Since early 2003, the people of Darfur have experienced a government coordinated, scorched-earth campaign combining the systematic use of indiscriminate aerial bombardment and the deployment of proxy armed forces known as Janjaweed. Almost all of the population has been affected, either directly through attacks on villages, killings, rape, looting and destruction of property, and forced displacement, or indirectly through the near total collapse of the region’s economy. Thousands are dead and millions have been forced from their homes. Millions more are at risk.
Paolo Pellegrin traveled to Sudan and Chad to expose the consequences of the ongoing human rights crimes that are fueling this unnatural and avoidable disaster.
