Five Years Of Impunity: The Man Behind The Darfur Genocide Remains Free

AFRICANGLOBE – President Bashir stands accused of the world’s most heinous crimes—genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. Bashir orchestrated the genocide in Darfur, which began more than 11 years ago when the Sudanese Armed Forces and its allied Janjaweed Arab militias launched a scorched earth campaign against the civilian population.

Khartoum: The World’s Most Selfish City?

The capital of Sudan, until recently the largest country in Africa, sits on either side of the River Nile under an almost perpetual haze of dust. As a child growing up in Khartoum, the city always struck me as sleepy and dark – power cuts were frequent, and the oppressive heat infused everything with a sticky torpor.

High Court Rules Israel’s Detention Of Africans Illegal And Must Stop

AFRICANGLOBE – Israel’s High Court of Justice ordered the state on Monday to close the Holot concentration camp for African refugees within 90 days, a dramatic decision that marked the first time the court has ever struck down two versions of the same law. Justice Uzi Vogelman, who wrote the majority ruling, termed conditions at Holot “wretched” and said the court was justified in overturning a law enacted by the Knesset for the second time because the legislation “violates human rights in an essential, deep and fundamental way.”

Ebola Excuse: Where’s The Debate Over ‘Boots On The Ground’ In Africa?

AFRICANGLOBE – American soldiers began arriving in Liberia this weekend, yet no one is talking about the threat of armed conflict that could suddenly emerge.
