UN Security Council

Some updates on yesterday’s story from the BBCL.A. Times, Reuters, Human Rights Watch, and the U.N.

And here is fresh reporting from CNN on the scale of the problem in Darfur.

The headline:  “Rape is a way of life for Darfur’s women.”

I did a story about this when Human Rights Watch released its report on rape in Darfur in April. You can listen here.

One response to “UN Security Council

  1. Thanks for your post.

I am providing the link in case you are interested. http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/10/25/using-rape-against-political-protesters/
