Violence erupted in Darfur in 2003, between Arab nomadic farmers and a settled African community competing over land.  Two rebel groups from the African community, who have been largely neglected by an Arab dominated nation, rose up in rebellion in 2003.  The government armed the local militia who have spent the last 3 years attacking the African community there and burning them out of their villages.  Miriam Gormally met Muireann Kirrane from Trocáire, who was in Darfur at the beginning of the troubles and asked her what it was like.
