NEW YORK (AP) - Sudan is seeking to eradicate the Nuba people, a group of 1 million non-Arabs, Africa Watch said.

The human rights group alleged that Sudan's campaign against the Nuba includes detention and killing of the educated, burning villages, separating men and women and relocating people to camps in adjoining northern Kordofan.

The Nuba include Christians and followers of animistic religions. They live in Sudan's Arab-dominated north. The report says the campaign is 'far beyond what is required to combat the rebel Sudan People's Liberation Army'.
