Human Rights Update: May 2016

Children again the unacceptable victims of the conflict

Attacks against civiliand in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile (also known as the “Two Areas”) continued in May, albeit at a reduced rate compared to incidents reported during the previous two months. Our monitors recorded a total of 29 incidents in the Two Areas with the majority of them (20 out of the 29) taking place in Southern Kordofan’s Heiban County resulting in the deaths of six children from a single incident.
