A team of experts has recommended that the UN Security Council impose sanctions on top Sudanese government officials for violations of peace efforts in the war-ravaged Darfur region, diplomats said Friday. The list, which is secret, was sent to the Security Council with an Aug. 31 report that all sides in the Darfur conflict continue to commit "blatant violations" of an arms embargo. It said the rebels appear to have gained strength since March, while the government continues to supply weapons to Arab militias. Qatar's UN Ambassador Nassir Al-Nassir said the new list of names forwarded to the Security Council includes "top people in the government." The number of people on the list also was not known.
