Concerned About the Deaths of Civilians?

According to the International Rescue Committee March 14, 2006
“Violence in the Darfur region of Sudan is raging. Militia groups have killed, raped, and committed other atrocities toward civilians. As many as 300,000 people in Darfur have been killed - 500 deaths occur each day. More than two million people have been forced from their homes and remain displaced and live under terrible and dangerous conditions.”

How’s the United Nations doing elsewhere? See Guardian December 10, 2004 Congo death toll up to 3.8m
“Six years of conflict in Congo have claimed 3.8 million lives - half of them children - with most victims killed by disease and famine in the still largely cut-off east, the International Rescue Committee said yesterday.”
