Yesterday Khartoum ordered an attack on Kalma camp. Dozens of residents were killed, and more than a hundred were wounded. Most are women and children. Kalma is home to 90,000 people displaced by government/janjaweed attacks upon their villages. Government forces are again massing outside the camp today. Residents fear a second assault.
Although humanitarian aid groups have withdrawn from the camp, Medecins Sans Frontires managed to evacuated 49 wounded civilians to a hospital in nearby Nyala, where one person has died. Many more of the wounded remain in the camp.
Where are you, Unamid?? Where are you ,world??? Khartoum is attacking a camp for displaced people!! Where do we draw the line?? If not now, under what circumstances would we respond? I'd really like to know. Can it be that there is no line ???
