Darfur Diaries: Message from Home

In February 2003, the Sudanese Liberation Army in Darfur (the western region of Sudan) took up arms against the Sudanese government after years of oppression. The government and allied militias answered the rebellion with mass murder, rape, and the wholesale destruction of villages and livelihood, resulting in one of the world's largest humanitarian and political crises. Up to two million people were displaced; 400,000 people killed.
