Jewish and Christian groups are holding a prayer vigil and demonstration outside Sudan's mission to the UN this afternoon (July 28), to protest the Khartoum regime's treatment of non-Muslim Sudanese.

The organisers say: "The Islamic republic of Sudan has enslaved, maimed, tortured, murdered and massacred millions of non-Muslims, traditional religionists, Nubians and moderate Muslims.

"At least three million Sudanese have already been displaced. Routinely villages are burned, raided and looted by Arab government forces. Male villagers are slaughtered, and women and children kidnapped and sold into slavery for as little as $15 or a few cows, and then trafficked to Arab countries in North Africa or the Middle East.

"Islamic 're-education' camps in the Sudan brutalise and torture small children And women who do not convert to Islam. The elderly who do not convert are killed."

Today's event will take place from 4:30pm-6:30pm, at the Sudanese mission, Third Avenue between 41st and 42nd Streets, Manhattan. To get their, take the Lexington & Flushing Subway Lines to 42nd St - Grand Central Stop on the East Side.
