Sudan

The last male northern white rhino

With news that Sudan is gravely ill and may face euthanasia where he is being guarded in Kenya, it seemed like a good time to remember him and those who kept him safe all these years.

Sudan, one of three remaining northern white rhinos in the entire world, has been closely guarded at Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy since 2009, along with two female rhinos.

Photos over the years show the affection shown by his keepers and armed guards who take care of these magnificent creatures.

Sudan government accused of using chemical weapons in Darfur

Amnesty International say the children are among more than 200 people estimated to have been killed by the banned weapons since January.

Those affected by the "poisonous smoke" vomit blood, struggle to breathe and watch as their skin falls off.

The Sudanese government and rebels have been fighting in Darfur for 13 years.

Yet the conflict and its toll on Darfur's citizens has fallen off the radar since 2004, when warnings of a potential genocide forced the outside world to act.
