Darfur Victims

Perpetrators: The Janjaweed, a government supported militia, carried out the killings of this genocide.

Janjaweed Militia

Why: The Janjaweed killed people of Darfur because Sudan has been part of two civil wars since 1956. The Northern part of Sudan was dominated by non-Muslims and the Northern Sudanese dominated the lives of the Southern Sudanese. The civil war caused a rise in racial tensions as well as oil in Darfur being coveted by the Northern Sudanese.

How: The killing in this genocide was carried out by burning villages, looting economic resources, polluting water sources, murdering, raping, and torturing civilians.

End: This genocide was never completely resolved. Southern Sudan gained independence and became its own country in 2011. Which helped to slow violence but three million people are still heavily impacted by the conflict.

International Aid: After five years the United Nations got involved and helped to make peace agreements to stop the wars but these agreements were never taken seriously by the Janjaweed. The UN also put out a warrant for arrest for the Sudanese President, Omar al-Bashir, who still has yet to be captured. The UN also put out a hybrid UN-African Union mission to maintain peace with a projected strength of 26,000 troops.

Today: At this point China has proven to be Sudan's strongest ally. Hopefully the unrest and killings in Sudan will be resolved in the near future.
