A new report from Amnesty International claims that since January, more than 200 people in Darfur, including children, have been killed by chemical weapons dropped by the Sudanese government. For 13 years, Sudanese forces and rebels have been fighting in the region, and in mid-January, the government launched an offensive against the Sudan Liberation Army. Amnesty International’s Tirana Hassan told the BBC that over the course of an eight-month investigation in Darfur, they found dozens of witnesses to at least 30 attacks using chemical weapons. The “scale and brutality of these attacks is hard to put into words,” Hassan said. Investigators saw images and videos of children covered with lesions and blisters, some vomiting, others unable to breathe. “The fact that Sudan’s government is now repeatedly using those weapons against their own people simply cannot be ignored and demands action,” Hassan said.
