Darfur: UN expert urges Sudan to investigate Darfur market killings

UN expert urges Sudan to investigate Darfur market killings - Yahoo! News:
"A UN-appointed human rights expert Tuesday urged Sudan to investigate a recent attack on a market by suspected government-backed militia in Darfur that left dozens of civilians dead.
Chande Othman said new information appeared to confirm reports that more than 37 people were killed and over 50 injured after a militia group attacked the village of Tabarat in North Darfur on September 2.
'I am deeply disturbed about these killings which highlight the continuing deterioration of the situation in Darfur,' said Othman, who was appointed an independent expert on the human rights situation in Sudan by the Human Rights Council last October, in a statement.
Othman called on the Sudanese government to conduct 'as a matter of urgency a thorough and transparent investigation into the attack on civilians in North Darfur.'
'This incident should be investigated thoroughly and impartially and those responsible should be brought to justice,' he said.
Several witnesses had identified the attackers as Janjaweed, according to the expert."
Why this doesn't surprise me? Till President Bashir, accused of genocide in Darfur by UN, is not removed from power, Janjaweed militias will continue their bloody and deadly work in the area.
