Darfur Violence Increasing Rapidly

(Re: "MP Paints Optimistic Picture of Darfur, But Urges For Resources to Maintain Stability" Embassy Oct. 5, 2005) Permit me to clarify that the child I mentioned was beheaded by a Sudanese government soldier in Southern Sudan, not Darfur. A legion of similar atrocities in the South are referred to in documents recently made public by the District Court of Southern New York in the law suit by the Presbyterian Church of Sudan and others against Talisman Energy and the government of Sudan (GoS). Gerard Prunier's just-published book, Darfur-Ambiguous Genocide, chronicles numerous similar incidents in Darfur.
