Report: Children In Darfur Tortured, Raped

The Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict report released Wednesday accused the Sudanese government of “apparent deliberate efforts … to suppress information and prevent agencies from collecting and disseminating details on attacks against children and their protection needs, particularly in Darfur” and eastern Sudan.

The report said humanitarian agencies have documented cases of armed groups shooting, mutilating and torturing children, abducting and gang-raping girls, and recruiting and using youngsters as combatants.

While the Sudanese armed forces continue to deny the presence of children in their units, the Watchlist said representatives acknowledge that children from other armed groups have recently been incorporated into the government’s military forces.

    does anyone at all have the guts to stand up to the guys causing all this chaos and pain in sudan? even the little people should matter and i mean the kids.they are also human.colour of the skin,height,age, should not matter! think about it…what if it was your kid going thru what the kids in sudan are going thru. or your niece…nephew…brother…sister. you and i were once kids too. A BIG THANK YOU TO YOU WHO HAVE DONE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO TRY AND PREVENT THIS FROM GOING ANY FURTHER.

    my prayers be with the CHILDREN OF SUDAN,
