Evacuation of "Arabs" from Southern Sudan

This photo and caption by Associated Press are confusing because the Islamic regime in Khartoum insists ethnic cleansing could never occur in Darfur as there is no difference between Sudanese Arabs and Sudanese Africans - that they are so interbred there is no such thing as Arab v African conflicts in the Sudan.

Several Arab traders were killed in two days of riots in Juba after officials announced on Monday the death of southern Sudan's political leader and country's Vice President John Garang in a helicopter crash in southern Sudan. Southerners are suspicious the Arab-dominated government had a hand in his death.

More than 130 people were killed in riots in Khartoum, the capital, and Juba and Malakal in the south, according to the Sudanese Red Crescent. (AP Photo/Sayyid Azim)
