Why isn’t this getting more news coverage?
The fact that militias trained and armed by the government are now emboldened enough to turn their guns on the government is a sign of trouble. It was government support of the janjaweed at the outset that ignited the fighting in Darfur that killed tens of thousands of people and displaced two million villagers.
If we ignore it, will it go away? That’s ridiculous. The crisis in Darfur is just getting worse.
