Another Busy Day for Darfur

Today was an action-packed day in Darfur –

The Sudanese government admitted to bombing the South Darfur position of rebel group Justice and Equality Movement (JEM). The bombing was carried out to “secure civilian lives” from rebels who refuse to adhere to the ceasefire ordered by Sudanese president Omar Al-Bashir in November.

The aforementioned Omar Al-Bashir accused International Criminal Court (ICC) Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo of having “no morals or manners“.  Regarding the ICC’s inevitable decision to issue an arrest warrant for Al-Bashir, the president stated that “they can dip it in water and drink it”.

Six women belonging to an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp in West Darfur were rescued by UNAMID after being abducted while gathering firewood.
