Sudan asks UNAMID to shut human rights office in Khartoum

A UN-African Union mission to Darfur vehicle patrols in Nyala, in Sudan's Darfur, November 5, 2014The UN-African Union mission in Darfur said Sudan has asked it to close its human rights office in Khartoum, as the government accused its peacekeepers of abuses. Ties between UNAMID and the government have deteriorated over the mission’s attempts to investigate reports that government troops raped 200 women and girls in the Darfur village of Tabit last month. UNAMID said it received a formal request “from the government of Sudan to close the mission’s human rights office in Khartoum on November 23”. The mission “has always had a liaison office” that includes a human rights section, its press department told AFP.
