Amnesty International Charges Sudan Uses Chemical Weapons in Darfur

Amnesty International issued a statement on 29 September 2016 titled "Sudan: Credible Evidence of the Use of Chemical Weapons to Kill and Maim Hundreds of Civilians Including Children in Darfur Revealed."

Amnesty's investigation that used satellite imagery and more than 200 interviews with survivors concluded that at least 30 likely chemical attacks have taken place in the Jebel Marra area of Darfur since January 2016. Sudan military forces launched in January 2016 a campaign in the Jebel Marra area against the Sudan Liberation Army/Abdul Wahid forces who they accuse of ambushing military convoys and attacking civilians.
