New BBC investigation examines Sudan’s secret hit squads targeting politial dissidents

Did you see the groundbreaking BBC OSINT investigation this past summer on an earlier atrocity in Cameroon? The same research group has just released a new investigation on Sudan’s secret hit squads used by the government security forces to violently repress protests and arrest specific dissidents for detention and torture. Many who are taken to their secret facilities, uncovered in this investigation, are never seen again. The Sudanese government continues to deny the existence of these squads and their use of torture and unnecessary violence. It remains to be seen how this investigation and accompanying evidence will be received by the international community, the Sudanese government, and opposition groups in the country.
