Rival leaders push their peace plans while Sudan burns.

Türk  Volker UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said he was "appalled by the callous and disrespectful way the dead, along with their families and communities, were treated".

He called for an investigation into their deaths and  said the RSF was obliged to treat the dead "with dignity".

Earlier this week, the RSF rejected allegations from Human Rights Watch that they had killed 28 members of the Masalit community and injured dozens of civilians before destroying the town of Misterei in May.

An adviser to the RSF leadership, Mustafa Mohamed Ibrahim, told the BBC the clashes there were part of an ongoing civil war between Arab groups and the Masalit "which is old and renewed".

There are concerns that attacks by the RSF and Arab militias against the Masalit community could result in a repeat of the 2003 Darfur killings, when Janjaweed militias killed  the 300,000 people  who later grew into the RSF.

The UN has already received reports of Arab militia targeting Masalit men and said the conflict has taken on an "ethnic dimension".
