Four Russian Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot" ground-attack jets sit on the tarmac of El Fasher airport in North Darfur, in this photograph taken October 8, 2010. Sudan has acquired 15 Russian-made Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot" jets from Belarus since 2008, and there is controversy over whether the Sudanese government has used them for air attacks against Darfuris in defiance of the 2005 U.N. arms embargo, according to UN report on arms embargo breaches on October 22, 2010.
