Two Roman Catholic priests were kidnapped by militia members, who stormed a church compound in the city of Rabak. The kidnapping occurred on Jan. 15, and there has been no contact with church officials since a phone call on Jan. 19.

From the article:
Quote
Four days later, on Jan. 19, the kidnappers forced the two priests to call their bishop with a ransom demand of 500,000 Sudanese pounds (U.S. $185,530), 250,000 Sudanese pounds each.

From this news account, Christians in North Sudan appear to be targeted with genocide.
