Troops crush the dreams of freedom in Sudan
This was the week that Darfur came to Khartoum. For the moment at least, Sudan’s dream of a peaceful revolution is over.
In the early hours of Monday, troops belonging to a paramilitary group notorious for atrocities in Darfur in the west of Sudan broke up a two-month sit-in led by students and professionals. Dozens of people were murdered. At the very least, 100 people have been killed, according to the association of Sudanese doctors. The real death toll is likely to be higher.
