Possible war crimes committed in South Kordofan

Residents of Kadugli gathered outside UNMIS compound after fleeing fighting that erupted in the town during the first week of June.

The United Nations is calling for a thorough investigation into crimes committed in Sudan's Southern Kordofan state after fighting broke out on 5 June between the Sudanese army and rebels.

A report produced by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights or OHCHR and the UN Mission in Sudan describes attacks against civilians and UN staff in the town of Kadugli, as well as in the surrounding Nuba mountains.

These attacks and other violations if substantiated, could amount to crimes against humanity or war crimes, according to Scott Campbell, OHCHR Africa Director.

He spoke to Patrick Maigua in detail about the alleged violations.
