The Sudanese government continues to violate sanctions imposed by the U.N. Security Council over its actions in Darfur.

A report by a U.N. monitoring panel, seen by The Associated Press on Tuesday, found violations of the arms embargo, the use of cluster bombs by the Sudanese government and the illegal transfer of intrusion software with electronic intelligence capability among other things.

The panel also documented numerous human rights violations attributable to the government, the financing of armed groups within the country which act as proxy forces and possible violations and a travel ban and an asset freeze on militia leader Sheik Musa Hilal Abdallah Alnsiem.

Human Rights Watch's Deputy U.N. Director Akshaya Kumar said the report demonstrated that the sanctions "now exist in name only."
