From Al Jazeera:

The former Darfur rebel activists told Al Jazeera that they padded death tolls and gave false evidence during investigations conducted by delegates from foreign organisations into the conflict.

"We used to exaggerate the numbers of murders and rapes," Salah al Din Mansour, a former translator with World NGOs in Darfur, said. "If the figure was 10, for example, we asked people to say two or three hundred." "In case of an attack on a certain village, from the Janjawid, we used to ask them to mention the government forces with their Land Cruiser cars, in order to involve the government in the tribal clashes."

The group said they had decided to admit to their alleged fabrications in an attempt to put an end to the crisis. Who can be believed?
