UNITED NATIONS, Feb 12 (Reuters) – The United States on
Thursday sharply criticized Sudan for obstructing a United
Nations investigation into what Washington’s U.N. envoy said
were credible allegations of mass rape in the conflict-torn
western Darfur region.
Speaking at a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, U.S.
Ambassador Samantha Power referred to a new report by New
York-based Human Rights Watch, which accused Sudanese soldiers
of raping at least 221 women and girls in the village of Tabit
over the course of three days.
