Gunmen on horseback kill 30 civilians in Darfur

Gunmen on horseback have killed up to 30 civilians in Darfur.

They were targeting a truck carrying aid and medicine to the war-torn Sudanese region.

It comes as demonstrations against violence there take place around the world.

Here in Ireland, the Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern is promising to increase pressure on the Sudanese Government at an EU meeting he is attending tomorrow.
