China and Russia have denied claims by Amnesty International that they are supplying arms to Sudan for use in Darfur, in breach of a UN arms embargo.
A report by the rights group says the weapons end up in the hands of the government-backed Janjaweed militia.
It also includes apparent photographic evidence of Sudan using military aircraft camouflaged white in Darfur.
