UN member states must join together in support of sanctions against Sudan's government for its failure to disarm militias, end impunity and protect civilians in the restive Darfur region, human rights activists said At a press briefing at the UN Correspondents Association on Tuesday, members of Human Rights Watch and a Sudanese human rights lawyer called on the United States and other Security Council members to end what they described as a "deadlock" in the sanctions process. They criticized three members - China, Russia and Algeria - for blocking all Security Council attempts to impose effective sanctions against the Khartoum government or government-backed Arab militias.
