Clearly, the US, supported by Britain, made a serious mistake when it bombed and destroyed the factory. The capability of Sudan to provide simple medicines for its people has been damaged by this act of war. There should be no further hesitation: the American and British governments should apologise and give all possible assistance to the Sudanese government in the rebuilding of the factory. The alternative is to wait for US and ourselves to be dragged and shamed before an international court of justice.
