Human Rights Watch World Report 2005

Each year, Human Rights Watch issues a report based on the organization's investigations into global human rights abuses. The 2005 edition, released today, leads with essays focused on "large-scale ethnic cleansing in Darfur in western Sudan, and detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, symptomatic of a broader problem of torture and mistreatment of detainees by U.S. forces."
