It May Be Getting Harder to Keep UN Eyes Shut

The Sudanese are making it more difficult to ignore what is happening:

Sudanese security forces have again stormed a refugee camp in the troubled region of Darfur and attacked crowds.

At least four jeep-loads of police arrived at the El-Geer camp near Nyala in the early hours, according to a BBC correspondent at the scene.

They fired tear gas and assaulted residents in front of representatives of the international community.
It happened a day after Sudan's government and rebels signed an agreement aimed at ending the crisis.
