SUDAN PRESIDENT BASHIR BOMBARDING THE VILLAGES IN THE NUBA MOUNTAINS

Nuba Mountains 9634

HE IS DOING IT RIGHT NOW!  These are refugees from the Nuba Mountains – now in a refugee camp in South Sudan.  I took this picture when I was in Sudan and South Sudan with Reverend Franklin Graham and Samaritans Purse in April.  These people fled the Nuba Mountains because President Bashir was bombing them and burning their villages.  He is still bombing his own people.  Check out this press release:
