Raiva ... por ser necessário desmentir

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Sudan has withdrawn its candidacy for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council following strong criticism from human rights and pro-democracy groups.
Sudan's U.N. Mission said in a letter obtained Friday by The Associated Press that "it is no longer interested in taking up one of the vacancies available in the Human Rights Council."
Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir, is accused of genocide and war crimes in Darfur, and his government is accused of human rights violations elsewhere. But Sudan was virtually guaranteed a seat on the 47-member council as one of five African candidates for five African seats.
Sudan's brief letter to Djibouti, which is the current coordinator for East African countries at the U.N., gave no reason for pulling out of the November election in the U.N. General Assembly.
