Today, the US State Department presented to Congress its annual report on global human rights.

The report revealed that “human rights worsened across Africa despite some bright spots”.

The major contributors to Africa’s lamentable human rights record?

Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Zimbabwe.

Recently, these three countries have been ravaged by government-sponsored genocide, sexual violence, use of child soldiers, attacks on peacekeepers, a lack of adequate food, water, shelter, and security, and other gross violations of human rights.

In response to the report, US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton vowed to uphold human rights in America and abroad

Not only will we seek to live up to our ideals on American soil, we will pursue greater respect for human rights as we engage other nations and people around the world.
