Transcript of Untitled Prezi
Many of the citizens were brutally abused and killed.
The primary tribes that were singled out were the Fur, the Massaleit, and the Zaghawa. They were not driven apart by laws or propaganda.
The Sudanese government did not use anything to identify the primary victims by. Instead, they were simply identified by which tribe they were in.
The Sudanese government organized a Sudanese Arab militia called the Janjaweed . The Janjaweed killed millions of people who were from the Fur, the Massaleit, the Zaghawa.
The Darfurians weren't classified. They were in tribes of their own choice.
The Sudanese government has denied any connection with the Janjaweed and killings that have taken place
