U.S. Calls for Investigation into Sudan Liberation Movement Killings

The United States joins United Nations Special Envoy Jan Eliasson and African Union Special Envoy Salim Ahmed Salim in calling for an impartial investigation of last weekend's attack on Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) facilities in Khartoum and the killing of a SLM senior commander near Nyala, South Darfur. We abhor these senseless acts of violence that undermine the Darfur Peace Agreement (DPA).

The DPA, is the path forward for providing a peaceful resolution to the Darfur crisis and for ending the suffering of innocent civilians. The United States regrets the loss of life and hopes an investigation results in a full and transparent accounting of events, which will lead to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators.
