Protestant prelate alleges ethnic cleansing in Sudan

Catholic World News - August 09, 2011

An Anglican bishop is charging that the military regime of Sudan is engaging in ethnic cleansing in Kordofan, the disputed border region between Sudan and the newly independent state of South Sudan.

“If you are not dead with the bombs, next year you’ll die from the famine, because the government of Sudan is not allowing the humanitarian [agencies] to go and give aid food and medicine to the people on the ground,” said Andudu Adam Elnail, the Anglican bishop of Kadugli, Kordofan’s capital. “And there is a lot of killing going on, and we consider this as ethnic cleansing.”
