Sudan Renews Attacks on Christian-Populated Area

Ad Feedback

Armed forces of the Islamic regime of Sudan's Omar al-Bashir attacked at least 26 villages in the Nuba Mountains in November.

The Nuba Mountains are home to Sudan's largest Christian population. Satellite images show burned out huts in South Kordofan, where the Nuba Mountains are located.

The Satellite Sentinel Project, which tracks activity in Sudan and South Sudan, said government forces destroyed schools, homes, churches, food crops, and grasslands in a 54-square mile area in the Nuba Mountains in November.

The area suffered vicious attacks during the 20-year civil war between the Arabic Islamic regime of Khartoum and Christians and black Africans in the south.

Why is Sudan renewing its attacks on these people? Jonathan Hutson, communications director for The Enough Project, described what is happening to Christians in this area.
