Sudanese refugees file lawsuit in US court against BNP Paribas over alleged complicity in Darfur genocide

On 2 May 2016, Sudanese refugees filed a complaint in a United States federal court against BNP Paribas over the bank's alleged complicity in the Darfur genocide. The complaint alleges the bank supplied funds that the Sudanese government used to purchase tanks, bombs, ammunition and other military hardware. Pro-government militia then used these weapons to kill and injure thousands of Darfuris.
