Between 200 to 250 people, many of them children, have been killed in at least 30 suspected chemical attacks in the Sudanese region of Darfur, according to a new report by global rights group Amnesty International.
With the introduction of a deadly new weapon, the long-running 13-year conflict could be entering a dangerous new phase, the rights group warns.
However, in an interview with Al Jazeera, Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour has strongly denied the use of chemical weapons by the Sudanese government forces.
Al Jazeera’s James Bays reports from the UN Headquarters in New York.
