Since 2003, upwards of 400,000 people have been slaughtered and mutilated, and tens of thousands of women and children raped in the Darfur region of Sudan. Today 80 to 90% of Darfurâ€™s villages are in ashes.
The peace process, which had shown promise in June 2007, is now looking bleak. Talks between the rebel factions and the Sudanese government broke down this past fall. Attacks continue and now include assaults on aid workers and diplomats.
