Sudan war crimes documentary hopes to curb skepticism in the Arab world

A new Arab-language documentary produced by human rights group Aegis Trust hopes to draw Arab audiences away from the idea that claims of genocide in Darfur are merely part of a Western conspiracy against Sudan. The documentary features first-hand accounts of alleged war crimes in Darfur from a few former members of Sudan's military and security forces, all of whom have their identities obscured by face-blurring effects.
