JanjaweedReport.jpg

One decade after Darfur’s Janjaweed militiamen earned global infamy as “devils on horseback,” Sudan is experiencing brutal violence at their hands once again. Newly armed and outfitted, re-branded as the "Rapid Support Force" (RSF) and flying the national flag, the government of President Omar al-Bashir has unleashed this new military entity, in a devastating campaign of mass atrocities. This report—the product of nine months of Enough Project and Satellite Sentinel Project research—traces the movements of the RSF across Sudan and exposes the civilian targeting that has become the hallmark of their activities.

While existing African Union and French forces have attempted to contain the fighting, peacemakers must think beyond immediate responses to the crisis.

Op-ed: Preventing Genocide in South Sudan

Statement Responding to Recent Atrocities and Violence in South Sudan

We have all been appalled by the fighting in South Sudan, particularly the recent atrocities committed in Bentiu and the attack on civilians in the UN compound in Bor.
 
We strongly condemn these vicious attacks against civilians,including at medical and religious institutions. Both parties to the conflict continue to transform it from a political dispute into a conflict of an increasingly ethnic character, with attacks involving one ethnic group triggering attacks against others. In addition, the growing regionalization of the conflict will continue to escalate and extend the war.
