    © 2003 Amnesty International: Sudanese refugee in Chad

    In 2002, the region of Darfur demanded its share of leadership in the Sudanese government.

    In hopes of eliminating dissent, the government hired militias known as the janjaweed. The janjaweed have decimated the villages of Darfur, killing over 400,000 and displacing millions more.

    Now the United Nations is sending a strong peacekeeping force to the region. More helicopters must be donated, however, before that force can adequetely protect the vast desert landscape.
