Underreported: Survival in Darfur

Thursday, October 16, 2008

Halima Bashir, a physician in her native Sudan, was tortured and repeatedly raped for informing on atrocities in Darfur. She then had to flee, and now lives as a refugee in London. She tells us about her new life, and what she thinks needs to happen to bring about peace in Darfur. Her new memoir is Tears of the Desert.
