'We were ordered to kill all the women'


War crimes prosecutors are seeking arrest warrants for Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir on 10 charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur.

They allege that Mr Bashir mobilised Sudan's military and Arab militias in a campaign of murder, rape and forced displacement.

One Sudanese army deserter - who asked to remain anonymous for his own safety - told Mike Thomson how he was ordered to participate in the massacre of civilians in Darfur.

Some people may find the events described in this video disturbing.
