Su­dan at­tacks slated

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

THE Su­danese gov­ern­ment must end po­lit­i­cally-mo­ti­vated and some­times deadly at­tacks on Dar­furi stu­dents at uni­ver­si­ties across the coun­try, says Amnesty In­ter­na­tional as it re­leased a re­port yesterday cov­er­ing a wave of at­tacks over three years.

“Dozens of stu­dents have been killed, in­jured and ex­pelled from uni­ver­si­ties since 2014 for or­gan­is­ing around and speak­ing out against hu­man rights vi­o­la­tions in Dar­fur,” said Muthoni Wanyeki, Amnesty In­ter­na­tional’s re­gional direc­tor for east Africa, the Horn and the Great Lakes.

“This is an ap­palling pat­tern that con­tin­ues.”
