Another Rwanda? The Human Rights Watch report mentioned below also accuses the world of showing "callous disregard" for the victims of widespread violence in Darfur, where 70,000 have been people killed and another two million have fled their homes. The report states that UN Security Council members China and Russia are preventing tougher action in the north African country to protect lucrative oil and arms contracts. Remembering the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, HRW director Kenneth Roth says, "Darfur is making a mockery of our vows of 'never again'."
