Horror continues in Sudan's Darfur - BBC

BBC Correspondent Orla Guerin, who broke the news on the bombing of Joghana in southern Darfur, says the horror continues in Darfur:
"What we have found, touring through this area, is village after village burnt, destroyed or abandoned. By the end of March the count was 90 villages.

Two years after the international community woke up to the crisis in Darfur, the reality is that villages are still being torched and civilians are still being forced to flee.

Keeping watch is the AU's main role here. It came with a limited mandate, lacking both equipment and troops.

Baba Gana Kingibe, head of the AU mission, told the BBC the international community should have done a lot more for Darfur."
