Using hi-tech satellite imagery, photos and eyewitness accounts, the ongoing crisis in Sudan's Darfur region is being brought into the homes of millions of internet users.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC has teamed up with Google's internet mapping service, Google Earth, to try to halt what they see as genocide.

By combining the museum's Darfur database with clickable images on the ground, they aim to create a "community of conscience" among internet users.

The hope is that people around the world will then put pressure on their governments to stop the violence in Darfur.

At least 200,000 people have been killed and two million displaced during the four-year conflict between rebel groups and pro-government militia in the region.

Sudan's government has so far refused to allow a joint UN-African Union peacekeeping mission to be deployed.
