July 16, 2007 (NYALA) —At a time when the world community is debating whether the peacekeeping force is a "hybrid force" or a "hybrid operation" ; whether the force is it under African Union or UN command; the human toll in Darfur is rising.

As disturbing as these images are, they are stern reminder of the grave reality on the ground in Darfur today. My personal belief is whoever inflicted this misery upon the people of Darfur will pay the price sooner or later.

One can only imagine why the Sudanese government does not want a peacekeeping force in Darfur with a mandate to protect civilians "using all necessary means". Khartoum said it will resist any such mandate.

These pictures were taken during the years 2003-2004.
