Introduction / History
The Logorik people, also known as Liguri, live in the central Nuba Mountains of Sudan. While most follow the animist religion of their ancestors, there is also a large number who are Muslim.

The Nuba Mountains cover an area about 90 by 40 miles and are higher than the surrounding plains by 1500 to 3000 feet elevation. The climate is tropical and hot with green vegetation in contrast to the surrounding plains that are quite arid. The villages are connected by trails, no roads. It is an extremely rugged and isolated region.

There has been ongoing war since 1983 in which the Sudanese government mined any entrance to the Nuba Hills and bombed villages in a pattern of genocide. They hope to drive out the people whom they suspect are aligned with the people of South Sudan.

Samaritan's Purse, journalists and others have brought the situation to the notice of the public through visits and by bringing food to the people who have been starved by the aerial bombing by the government of Sudan. The President of Sudan, Bashir, is the first head of state to be indicted by the International Criminal Court.
