Bashir: “We Have Not Killed Our Citizens”

In a recent interview with BBC, indicted Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir denied that his government did anything wrong in Darfur –

The source of the violence in Darfur is caused by a tribal struggle…the government is playing the role of intervention to help stop this struggle…I challenge anybody to bring me evidence which proves the Sudanese armed forces attacked and killed citizens in Darfur…we have never fought against our citizens, we have not killed our citizens.

Bashir maintains that the “media propaganda” surrounding Darfur is nothing more than a conspiracy against Sudan.

What happened in Darfur was an insurgency…the state has the responsibility to fight the rebels…any state in the world and any responsible government would fight those who raise arms against it.
