BBC has concrete evidence - Straw says UN Security Council wanted to slacken their efforts in Sudan

More pressure must be piled on the Sudanese government after new evidence showed security forces storming a Darfur refugee camp, says British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw. Responding to a BBC film which also showed civilians driven away by officials, the foreign secretary said he found the footage "very shocking".

Jack Straw said he hoped the "concrete evidence" would be broadcast in the capitals of Security Council members, "who frankly have thought that it is time to slacken our efforts in Sudan, rather than increase the pressure".
