Ahmed Harun, Sudan’s Minister of State for Humanitarian Affairs has given an interview to the guardian and protested his innocence for the death of more than 250,000 people in Sudan. This comes at a time when the International Criminal Court has charged Harun with the crime of genocide and asked for his arrest.

Mr. Harun’s contention is that the evidence against him has been concocted by the international community and he has vowed not to submit himself to the international criminal court.

This photograph by Kevin Carter won the Pulitzer Prize in 1994 for feature photograph. The vulture seems to be waiting for the child to starve to death. Taken during the Sudan Famine, it is stated that Kevin could’nt take it anymore and committed suicide 3 months later.

I am pretty keen on going and spending some time in Darfur. I dont think its proper to hear about Genocide in the paper and show that you care. I would like to see Genocide.

Could anyone help me with it?
