Now satellite images of villages there show clear evidence of the destruction of villages, with gray smudges all that is left in many cases. The analysis was done by the Science and Human Rights Project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Under a MacArthur Foundation grant, Lars Bromley, a geographer, and others there have been following up on eyewitness accounts gathered by Human Rights Watch and other private groups. Mr. Bromley and his team collect and analyze images from DigitalGlobe and other purveyors of satellite-gathered data to assess the claims.

Note that this involves actual human rights, not the phony Canadian variety.
