Sudan military sought to intimidate during 'mass rape' probe: UN

A UN-African Union mission to Darfur (UNAMID) vehicle patrols a street in the city of Nyala in Sudan's Darfur, on November 5, 2014, during a visit to the region by European Union (EU) ambassadorsThe Sudanese military sought to intimidate villagers in Darfur to keep quiet allegations of mass rape of more than 200 women and girls by Khartoum’s soldiers, according to a UN internal report. The report by the joint UN-AU mission in Darfur suggests that a visit by a team of monitors to the village of Tabit was carefully prepared by the Sudanese military to prevent witnesses from coming forward. During the team visit, there was a heavy presence of Sudanese soldiers who followed the monitors and recorded interviews with the villagers, according to the UN-African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) report obtained by AFP.
