Why is the Darfur situation at the ICC?
By Justice Hub
Darfur is a region in western Sudan. Roughly the size of Spain, Darfur has around 7.5 million inhabitants. In 2003, two rebel groups - the Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) - began attacking the government of Sudan which is oppressing Darfur’s non-Arab population. War broke out between the Sudanese army and the rebel groups, with the support of the Janjaweed militia and a small number of Bedouins. The war is still continuing. According to the UN, there have been more than 300,000 victims and almost 3 million people have been displaced.
