United Kingdom Foreign & Commonwealth Office Annual Report on Human Rights 2008
We still face huge challenges in upholding the UDHR, as 2008 showed. The year was punctuated by human rights related crises. In Zimbabwe, the spring elections saw a peak in the regime's campaign of systematic and targeted violence. The war in Georgia in August was a painful reminder of the threat that conflict still poses to human rights in Europe. Then the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November killed over 170 people, and the crisis in Gaza at the end of the year brought yet more human suffering.
