UN blames gov't for 50 civilian deaths in Darfur

The United Nations said Friday that hundreds of men identified by residents as "Janjaweed" militia forces killed about 50 civilians in an attack last week on West Darfur villages and a camp for displaced people. "At the very least, the attacks demonstrated the government of Sudan's continued failure to disarm militia in Darfur, and at worst its use of militia forces that target civilian populations," said a UN human rights report released in Geneva.
