Casualties of Conflict
6:30pm - 7:00 pm, April 12, 2012
This Week's Guests:
An ethnic and religious divide helped demarcate the split between Sudan and the newly independent South Sudan; but dividing communities is not nearly as neat. Some ethnically southern communities are now considered nation-less in the Arab north.
The Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) fighting Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) are also targeting these civilians in their aerial attacks in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile state, a stark reminder of the genocide in Darfur. Hundreds of thousands have fled to the south seeking refuge in the world’s newest country, which lacks the infrastructure to support such a humanitarian crisis. With each day Sudan and South Sudan step closer to war.
Join our host, David Reed, for a discussion on the situation and fate of ethnic minorities in Sudan, the current crisis at refugee camps in South Sudan and the brewing conflict between Sudan and South Sudan.
