Government Should Allow Aid to Population in Rebel-Held Areas
(New York) - Sudanese government forces have carried out a series of attacks on civilians since August 2010 in Jebel Marra, the mountainous rebel stronghold in central Darfur, Human Rights Watch said today. The government should halt the attacks and allow access for the United Nations and humanitarian organizations to civilians in all areas, Human Rights Watch said.
