USA and Sudan

A factory in Sudan is bombed with Tomahawk missiles by the USA.

This was later admitted by the USA to have been an error. The casualty toll remains unknown as the USA blocks a United Nations inquiry. Western media do not persue the story.

The plant was under contract with the United Nations to export medicines; a fact that the USA appeared not to know. Half of the country's pharmaceutical supplies were produced in the plant. Tom Carnaffin, a technical manager of the plant in the mid-1990s from the UK, tells The Observer (UK):

"I have intimate knowledge of that factory, and it just does not lend itself to the manufacture of chemical weapons."
