|After a peace agreement was signed between North Sudan and South Sudan at the beginning of this century, the residents of Darfur in Western Sudan began to demand their “share of the pie” in Sudan. The government responded harshly- systematic extermination of the population of Darfur, specifically the Fur, Zaghawa, and Massalit tribes. |
Sudan is the largest country in Africa. Its territory is about a quarter of the size of the United States, and approximately 40 million people live there. Sudan’s population is made up of 140 different ethnic groups, 36% of them Arab. 114 languages are spoken in Sudan, but Arabic is the official language of the north, and English that of the south. About 70% of the population is Muslim, 20% Christian, and 10% Animist.
The war of the north against the south:
Sudan became independent from Britain in 1956. Almost from the moment of independence there was conflict between the mostly African-Christian south and the Arab-Muslim north, which in 1962 developed into a civil war.
