(ACLJ) — Christian South Sudanese refugee children are denied food in Sudan’s refugee camps unless they recite Islamic prayers.
The U.S. Department of State includes three nations on its “State Sponsor of Terrorism” list. Sudan is one of them, along with Syria and Iran.
Sudan was designated a State Sponsor of Terrorism in 1993. Countries on this list are “determined by the Secretary of State to have repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism.” However, Sudan’s jihadist problem exists within their borders as well. Earlier this year, we warned that “[f]or years the Sudanese Christian church has encountered church demolitions, property confiscations, and unjust imprisonments.”
