Khartoum- The African Union and United Nations in Darfur received on Thursday information that a Government of Sudan police team had entered Kalma camp for internally displaced people (IDPs) in South Darfur and drove down a road separating some of the camp's sectors.

The UNAMID said subsequent to that, about 100 IDPs, mostly youth, assembled outside UNAMID’s Community Policing Centre (CPC) and stoned it.

As a result, one peacekeeper suffered a light injury and the premises sustained damage. UNAMID reinforcements, sent to ensure the security of Mission personnel, were withdrawn after a short period of time, it added.
UNAMID emphasizes the importance of restraint by all parties in and around Kalma and recalls the responsibility of all the involved sides to maintain the humanitarian character of the camps.
