Rape Rampant in Darfur

Women in Darfur continue to be subjected to rape by all sides in the brutal conflict in the western Sudanese region, the UN human rights chief said yesterday - International Women's Day. Louise Arbour said she has about 75 human rights officers monitoring abuses in Darfur, and that many women were being attacked as soon they ventured out of refugee camps to carry out essential chores.
