Foreign Secretary comments on recent reports of a mass rape in Northern Darfur, and the subsequent denial of access to the United Nations African Union Peacekeeping Mission to the area.
The Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:
I am deeply concerned by the emerging reports from Northern Darfur. These are serious allegations that must be investigated immediately. The Government of Sudan must grant the United Nations African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) full and immediate access to the affected areas and reported victims.
