The begining of the horrendous genocide took place when two rebel groups revolted against the Sudanese government, blaming them for neglect. The government then sent soldiers to stop this causing this atrocity, the soldiers are called Janjaweed.
The BBC News website looks at the background to the fighting in Sudan's western region of Darfur.
This article is essentially a question and answer article, the main questions are how did it start?and What did the government do? It started from a conflict of opressing blacks in Sudan in favor of Arabs. The government tried to attack the rebels whom attacked and raped villagers.
This article I have read explains how the genocide in Darfur has been mislabled in order to appeal to the media. Casualty rates were exaggerated and mislabled as direct cause of war even if it was due to starvation and disease. 2 Billion dollars have been spent on helping the Darfur people only 17 percent went to humanitarian aid. Many more people would have been saved if the money had been used more wisely.
The Genocide in Darfur has been ongoing for 10 years. Today, the fighting persists, though not as extreme. In Sudan today, the government had attacked the southern province of South Kordofan, similar to what had occured in Darfur where black Sudanese live. Tactics of murdering civilians were the use of bombs gunfire and famine, What's more, this was not a painless death it was slow and painful. The people of Darfur and Kordofan were being discriminated for where they were born.
The world invoked its vow 'Never Again!' after the genocide in Rwanda and atrocities in Srebrenica. Then came Darfur.
After two fairly recent genocides in Rwanda and eastern Europe the world said "never again" will this happen, but just 8 years ago Sudan had an atrocious civil war costing hundreds of thousnds of lives.

Hari is a Zaghawa tribesman from Darfur, Sudan, after escaping from his village when it was attacked by the Sudanese Army in 2003, he began working as a translator for NGOs and journalists in refugee camps in Chad, and as a guide for journalists who wanted to make the dangerous crossing into Darfur to report on the conflict. After many near-death experiences, including a several-month challenge in which he was captured by the Sudanese government as a spy.
This story, while interesting, terrifying and emotional was poorly written and slow. I have learned quite a bit from reading this memoir, forexample I had not realized the atrocities that had occured, also I had no idea this took place in recent history. This book was very similar to "A Long Way Gone" While taking place in another African country. Also the main charecter was not part of the fighting, he was not a boy soldier. Daoud witnessed the violence and rape of innocent people.
