Alleged ethnic cleansing that Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has undertaken against black Africans in the Nuba Mountains also is aimed at ridding the area of Christianity, according to humanitarian workers interviewed by Compass Direct News. “The ongoing war against Christians and African indigenous people is more of an ethnic cleansing in that they kill all black people, including Muslims,” one worker said. “But they give specific connotation to the war in targeting Christians to secure funding and support from the Arab and Islamic world by saying this war is a religious war.”
