Disaster in Darfur: Powell and Annan to investigate

US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, and the UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan visited Sudan to investigate the scale of devastation in Darfur.

PRAVDA.Ru wrote that worsening humanitarian situation as Janjaweed militia continued with ethnic cleansing operation in war-torn South-West Sudan.

The refugees continued to flood across the border into Chad at the rate of hundreds a week. Despite peace agreements signed between the Sudanese government and two rebel factions in the south of the country, attacks on ethnic Negroes by Arab Janjaweed militia continued unabated.

According to reports from the United nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over 100,000 refugees have been accommodated in safe camps in Chad but "hundreds more are continuing to flee the war-torn region of Darfur because of deadly militia attacks"

Meanwhile what does the international community do? It donates less than half the 8.8 million USD needed by the UNO for food distribution programmes, while the USA spends two hundred thousand million dollars on its act of butchery in Iraq.

Thousands of children have been separated from their parents, not even knowing whether they are alive, while the livelihoods of 15 million children in the country are at risk, according to declarations by UNICEF.

Kofi Annan speaks of a "grave humanitarian emergency", the UN Security Council speaks of "the biggest humanitarian disaster", the UN Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs Director Jan Egeland speaks of "racing against the clock" but the killing goes on, the looting goes on, the mass rapes go on, the burning of farms goes on, the acts of violence, in which people are hacked to death because they are from the wrong tribe, go on.

And what does the international community do? It turns a blind eye and pretends that nothing has happened. The story does not even make it to many so-called news outlets. What a callous, inhumane, uncaring, selfish world we have created.
