Arms in Sudan: Facts and Figures
The Small Arms Survey’s Sudan Human Security Baseline Assessment (HSBA) has launched a new ‘Sudan Facts and Figures’ web resource that synthesizes and presents more than four years of field-based research and analysis on armed groups, arms flows, and arms holdings in Sudan, as well as the Darfur peace process.
Visit ‘Sudan Facts and Figures’ at www.smallarmssurveysudan.org/facts-figures.php
The site not only provides easy access to useful facts, data, and maps
contained in the more than three dozen HSBA Issue Briefs and Working Papers already published, but also presents current, field-based updates on key developments in Sudan’s security scene.
Highlights of the new web section include:
– A ‘who’s who’ of Darfurian armed opposition groups.
– A ‘who’s who’ of Chadian armed opposition groups.
– The latest on the Darfur Peace Process.
– The latest on the on-off Sudan-Chad proxy war.
These and other (forthcoming) areas of the website will be updated
The HSBA has built in feedback mechanisms throughout the site to solicit comments and suggestions for making it more useful. In this way the site will be as interactive as possible.

the link doesnt work. Is it possible to read the survey on a different link
Interesting about arms in Sudan. Who furnishes them? In the mid-80s in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, a small parade came by with a mock casket carried by people from Liberia, with a sign on it that said “Israel out on a slow boat with holes.” I asked them what Israel had to do with Liberia.
They said their people were being beheaded and Israel was selling weapons to the killers. I asked how they knew it was Israel. They said the planes were clearly marked! Later we were at a Peace w/Justice meeting (in Indiana US) and saw some Liberians and asked them about what we had seen. They were shocked we knew about it, yes it was true they said.
