More Mass Graves Reported In S. Kordofan

WASHINGTON, Aug. 24 (UPI) — An advocacy group said Wednesday it confirmed the burial of human remains in the restive Sudanese state of South Kordofan.

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir announced a two-week cease-fire in South Kordofan to allow time for the observation of suspected South Sudanese rebels.

Conflict in the border state erupted as South Sudan prepared for its inaugural Independence Day. U.N. human rights teams investigating the situation said much of the conflict in the area appeared to be ethnically motivated.

The Satellite Sentinel Project announced it confirmed human remains were buried in sites believed to be mass graves in South Kordofan. The SSP said it had evidence to suggest the Sudanese Red Crescent Society was linked to the atrocities.

“Acting on instructions from the State of South Kordofan, the SRCS used an excavator to dig and cover large pits,” the group said in a statement. “In some cases, eyewitnesses reported, SRCS workers poured fuel on dead bodies and set them on fire.”

Dafalla al-Haj, the Sudanese representative to the United Nations, said a recent report from U.N. human rights officials on South Kordofan state was based on hearsay and didn’t reflect the situation on the ground, the official Sudan News Agency reported this week.

U.N. officials said there was evidence that at least 150 bodies were discovered in South Kordofan.

South Sudan’s independence was part of a comprehensive peace deal reached in 2005 that helped end Sudan’s civil war, one of the bloodiest in world history.

    Apparently,the killing hasnt stopped.But it has disappeared from the media reporting it.
    Mass graves mean that atrocities are being committed.
    That will lead to folks being angry that nothing is done about it.
    Eventually someone will be blamed,by the powers that arise.

    Anyone want to bet it will not be the U.S.A?
    Yes….I see a condition of malaise in the future.
    Keep in mind,that I am not a prophet.
    Yet,I can still see the future as clear as day.
    A day in which there will be blood spilled for the ignorance of the situation in the Sudan.
    American blood.
    I hate making such a prediction,but in the world at large,there doesnt seem to be another way of getting attention on a subject,other than to kill Americans to get it done.
    The rest of the world will cheer the violence on.
    We will be the unfortunate recipients of the focus of someones rage.
    It is a story that is both new and old.
    It is a story that needs the addage of a new chapter before the whole story is told.

    Brutal murders and GOD cries. The strange dynamic of omnipotence and super respect for free will tells any intelligent person that free will is supreme in GOD’s priority system. This of course produces such attrocities as mass graves, raped children, and starving masses. The only solace we can have is that HE who cannot lie has promised complete justice and that HE will wipe away every tear. This takes great faith when you are involved personally (have family memeber or dear friend murdered). It is a litte easier to accept when you have had the Holy Spirit conducted heart transplant which results in heart pain over such brutality.
