Google Earth Maps Atrocities in Darfur

"When it comes to responding to genocide, the world's record is terrible. We hope this important initiative with Google will make it that much harder for the world to ignore those who need us the most," said Holocaust Museum director Sara Bloomfield in a statement.

"Crisis in Darfur" is the first of the museum's "Genocide Prevention Mapping Initiative" that is aimed at providing information on potential genocides early on in the hope that governments and others can act quickly to prevent them.

"At Google, we believe technology can be a catalyst for education and action," Elliot Schrage, Google's vice-president, said in a statement.

    Is that genocide being carried out by 'youths' ?

    Well probably carried out by disgruntled tribesmen, or perhaps anti-racist activists.
