The Sudan Human Rights organization Cairo Office is gravely concerned for the murderous attacks on the citizens of the Merwoe Dam area by government security forces and militia groups on the 22nd of April, 2006. As relayed by several witnesses, as well as families of the injured citizens, the attack was planned and executed by the assaulting troop in collaboration with the security headquarters of the dam administration, which had been threatening with “severe reactions” the natives opposing the dam’s location and the resettlement plans for the natives far away from their ancestral land at the Nile banks.
