Clooney's Satellite Sentinel Project documents crimes against humanity in South Kordofan

The Satellite Sentinel Project, or SSP, has published new DigitalGlobe imagery confirming the bombardment and destruction of 90 percent of a civilian residential area in the Abassiya district of South Kordofan, as well as 25 percent of nearby El Moreib village. The village is strategically situated at a crossroads which represents a gateway from South Kordofan into neighboring North Korodofan state.

The systematic destruction of  El Moreib, through razing and/or indiscriminate bombardment of civilian infrastructure, can constitute a crime against humanity and represents a gross violation of human rights and international humanitarian law
