Gunmen burn civilians alive in Sudan
Khartoum - Gunmen on horseback attacked a truck carrying medicine and aid in Sudan's war-ravaged Darfur region and killed around 30 civilians on board, some of whom were burned alive, the United Nations said on Sunday.
The African Union had earlier put the death toll at 22 and said 10 others were wounded on Saturday when gunmen attacked the vehicle near Sirba, 45km north of El Geneina, capital of West Darfur state and close to the Sudan-Chad border.
"The gunmen were riding on horseback. The exact number of civilian casualties is not yet established but it is estimated that around 30 people were killed," UN spokesperson in Sudan Radhia Achouri said on Sunday.

Kofi pad to get $4.3M fixup NY Daily News Exclusive
The United Nations plans to gut the super-luxe East Side townhouse that's home to the secretary general and give it a multimillion-dollar renovation - complete with a $200,000 kitchen.
"That's a fantastic budget. It'd be a hell of a thing," said Stefan Boublil, owner of swanky SoHo design firm The Apartment. "It's an expensive kitchen."
The pricey kitchen upgrade is only a small part of a $4.3 million overhaul of the four-story Sutton Place manse where Kofi Annan has lived rent-free for a decade.
And that's not the whole cost.
UPDATE: Annan to blast U.S. in farewell USA Today hat tip x___dhimmi
In a farewell speech on U.S. soil today, retiring United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan plans to deliver a tough critique of President Bush's policies. He will accuse the administration of trying to secure the United States from terrorism in part by dominating other nations through force, committing what he termed human rights abuses and taking military action without broad international support.
Though Annan has long been a critic of the war in Iraq and other Bush foreign policies, the planned speech is among his toughest and is unusual for a U.N. secretary-general concluding his tenure.
He ought to be exiled to Africa where his African brothers would tear him limb from limb, this evil poser.
