Killings and hunger stalk Western Sudan

Since late last year, the greater Darfur region of western Sudan has been plunged into one of the worst emergencies in the world today. Many thousands of villagers have been killed as the Sudanese armed forces and a governmentbacked militia seek to crush local insurgents. Some 2 million people, many of them driven from their homes by the conflict, need “acute assistance,” according to UN estimates. Another 130,000 have fled across the border into neighbouring Chad.
