news - Update: Rights Group Defends Report Over Darfur Violence

october 7th, 2009

"Human Rights Watch says it stands by its report which stated that the war in Sudan's restive Darfur region has not ended.

The report sharply contradicted earlier observations from the United Nations and African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID), which claimed the violence, has ended.

Khartoum dismissed the rights group's report describing it as one-sided and an affront to the government and people of Sudan.

The administration also accused Human Rights Watch of bias and having a political agenda to tarnish the reputation of President Omar Hassan Bashir's government.

The rights group however denied the charges as unfounded."
