Recycled terror

'Killers' guarding Sudan refugees

Arab militiamen responsible for atrocities in Sudan's Darfur region are now guarding camps for the displaced, a UN official has been told by refugees.

Refugees in different camps in North Darfur have said this to United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour, she told the BBC. The militiamen have been recycled into Sudan's police force, she said.

They claim to see former Janjaweed... recycled into the police," Ms Arbour told the BBC's Today programme.

"There is a widespread belief they are being protected by their very oppressors."
