Relief organizations say almost one third of Iraqis need emergency humanitarian aid
Tuesday July 31st, 2007
The war in Iraq has led to the greatest mass exodus of people ever in the Middle East and threatens to overtake Darfur in the numbers of displaced. A report by Oxfam International and the NGO Coordination Committee of Iraq concludes 'the slide into poverty and deprivation since the coalition forces entered the country in 2003 has been dramatic, and a deep trauma for the Iraqi people.' One in seven Iraqis have fled for fear of being killed. More than 2 million are now in Syria and Jordan. Another 2 million are believed to be living away from their homes inside Iraq, often in makeshift camps. The report says 70 per cent of Iraqis don't have adequate access to clean water, compared to 50 per cent four years ago. Humanitarian aid has also declined from 53 million in 2005 to less than 00 million last year. British journalist Patrick Cockburn writes in the Belfast Telegraph the United States 'has 18 benchmarks to measure progress in Iraq but the return of 4 million people is not among them.' APTN cameras recorded the squalid conditions for internal refugees living near Najaf.

Interview by an english journalist
Vowing to “Give up the pounds, not the fight,” Dr. Ian Smith, physician, journalist, medical/diet expert on VH1’s ‘Celebrity Fit Club’ and host of BET’s ‘Meet the Faith’ is teaming up with State Farm® and a remarkable group of African-American leaders and champions to launch The 50 Million Pound Challenge, an unprecedented national campaign and historic commitment by the African-American community to join hands and help people take control of their health by losing weight and staying fit. It aims to fight back against the epidemic of excess weight and related deadly diseases that threatens half of all Americans today and is hitting the African-American community especially hard—taking the lives of too many loved ones from heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses.

North and South continue blame game
As the Darfur crisis continues to deteriorate, Southern Sudan removed its ministers from the Government of National Unity last week. Northern and Southern Sudan remain deadlocked on sharing oil revenue, drawing borders between north and south, and troop redeployment from each others territory. The Sudan People's Liberation Movement(SPLM) accuses Khartoum of multiple breaches of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed in 2005. Khartoum denies these charges. Describing the fragile situation, Khartoum based journalist Opheera McDoom says 'it could go either way now, we are at a critical turning point.'
Update: Despite President Bashir's cabinet shuffle this week, the SPLM said the new ministers 'will stay out of government until the application of the terms of the peace accord...' The standoff continues and the crisis in Darfur remains unchanged.
