Reuters: Girls raped by uniformed men in Darfur - peacekeepers. Two girls aged 11 and 12 and three women were raped by men wearing military uniforms in Sudan's Darfur region, peacekeepers said on Wednesday. The joint U.N./African Union UNAMID peacekeeping force said it would not release details of the date or place of the sex attacks because of high sensitivity over the issue. But force spokesman Noureddine Mezni told Reuters the crimes had been "documented" over the past week. Khartoum denies there has been any organised campaign of rape, while allowing that individual cases may have occurred.

Washington Post: Witness for the Persecuted. "Tears of the Desert" is that rarest of literary endeavors, not just a book you read but a book you experience. Halima Bashir's story of growing up in the Zaghawa tribe of Darfur is vivid, poignant and brutally candid. It is also, simply, brutal. When she describes (with the expert help of her co-writer) the life of her remote desert village, readers will not want to put the book down. When she turns to the violence that shattered her village, her family and her own life, readers will have to steel themselves to go on. No one who finishes "Tears of the Desert" will ever be able to say he or she has not been called as a witness to this genocide.
