The Church Burnings At Yida

In the early morning hours of January 16, 2016, three churches in Yida Refugee Camp were torched. Over six months later, it is still unclear exactly why this crime was committed and who was behind it.

In 2011, the government of Sudan launched a brutal genocidal war against the people living in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. Government warplanes have bombed schools, clinics, markets, and homes in an attempt to drive the Nuba people off of their land.
