U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power delivered a statement Wednesday condemning the Sudanese government's armed attacks against civilians in Darfur, and urging peacekeepers to act "more aggressively."
The government-supported Rapid Support Forces have launched attacks against civilians in South Darfur. Meanwhile, in North Darfur, Sudan Armed Forces have clashed with a Sudanese Liberation Army faction. The fighting has displaced nearly 120,000 people since January.
