Crisis in Darfur

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum and Google Earth have launched a new project today, to increase awareness and understanding of the conflict and violence that have resulted in more than 300,000 people being killed and about 2,500,000 people being driven from their homes in the Darfur region of Sudan since 2004.

If you already have Google Earth, then the Darfur region should be highlighted. If not, you can download GE here.

The BBC coverage of the story is here, and you can find out more about the project from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum website.
