HRW accuses Sudan army, allies of Blue Nile killings, rapes

Waving the national flag, Sudanese soldiers rally in the capital of Khartoum on May 21, 2014Human Rights Watch on Monday accused Sudanese government forces and allied militias of leading a campaign of killings and rapes in areas of Blue Nile state where they are battling insurgents. Khartoum has been struggling to crush an insurgency in Blue Nile and neighbouring South Kordofan since 2011, when the Sudan Peoples Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) mounted a revolt. “Sudanese government forces are getting away with abusive and illegal tactics under a guise of counterinsurgency, including rape, arbitrary detentions and killings,” HRW’s Daniel Bekele said in a report. HRW’s report was based on interviews with six internally displaced persons inside Blue Nile and 42 refugees who had fled to South Sudan.
