Human Rights Watch (HRW) has accused Sudan’s Armed Forces (SAF) of dropping cluster bombs in the troubled South Kordofan state targeting the civilians in February and March this year.
Since 2011 the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement - North (SPLM-N) have fought the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and their aligned militia the Popular Defence Forces (PDF).
The conflict began in South Kordofan State in June 2011 and in Blue Nile State in September the same year.
HRW’s African director Daniel Bekele said the SAF’s use of cluster bombs in South Kordofan shows the government’s total disregard for its own people.
“Sudan should immediately stop using these horrendous weapons, destroy its stockpiles and respect the prohibition on cluster munitions by joining the convention on cluster munitions,” he said.
HRW researchers visited South Kordofan in the first week of April and found evidence of six cluster bombs, including remnants of the weapons, including sub munitions, apparently dropped by government aircraft on villages in Delami and Um Durein counties.
HRW also confirmed that Sudan has continued to bomb civilian areas indiscriminately throughout the region.
