Sudan silences critics

The Daily Star:

Less than a week before a critical UN Security Council meeting on Darfur, Amnesty International on Wednesday accused the government in Khartoum of intimidating and imprisoning scores of Sudanese villagers, journalists, translators, lawyers and human rights activists who dared to speak out about a conflict that has left more than 30,000 people dead and more than a million displaced.
Enough is enough. The Sudan Government is commiting genocide against its own people. It is time, past time, for the world to fully and forcefully condemn this atrocity and take steps to protect the people of Darfur. This is a moral responsibility that we can not shirk.
