The United Nations (UN) has announced that violence in areas inhabited mostly by civilians in Sudan has displaced over 200,000 people so far this year.
The United Nations (UN) has announced that violence in areas inhabited mostly by civilians in Sudan has displaced over 200,000 people so far this year.
The world organization expressed on Friday concern about human rights violations in the northeastern African nation.
A UN panel of experts has mostly blamed government forces and pro-government militiamen for the recent uptick in the violence in Sudan’s Darfur region and the consequent exodus of people.
A report released in May by the UN said that more than 450,000 people were forced to flee their homes in 2014, registering the highest number in a decade for crisis-hit Darfur.
Sudan plunged into violence in 2003, when rebels took up arms against the government in Khartoum, the capital of the country. There has also been tribal fighting in the region.
The turmoil in the country comes amidst the presence of a 20,000-strong UN peace-keeping force in Darfur.
