Move along, there’s nothing to see here:
Sudanese police officers sent to restore security in troubled Darfur are sexually exploiting refugee women, according to a U.N. report.
Khartoum says it has sent10,000 police to the western region, and has only about two weeks to convince the U.N. Security Council it is serious about improving the plight of people in Darfur or face unspecified sanctions.
“IDPs (Internally Displaced People) report increasing incidents of sexual abuse and exploitation in Abu Shouk Camp near el-Fasher committed by police officers,” said the U.N. humanitarian situation report, received by Reuters Saturday.
When you read of atrocities like this one, pour yourself a glass of red wine, prop your feet up on the ottoman, sign a lucrative oil deal, and ask yourself, “What would France do?”
