Displaced Camp In Sudan's Darfur Looted, Destroyed
Internally Displaced Camp In Sudan's Darfur Looted, Destroyed, Un Says
A humanitarian team, sent by the United Nations mission in Sudan, has found that the El Geer camp, from which Sudanese police and military units removed internally displaced people (IDPs) in Darfur, was looted and destroyed.
"The UNICEF-installed water pump and generators had reportedly been looted by police, leaving no water source in the camp," a UN spokesman said at the daily briefing in New York.
Several thousand people who had been scattered in the area of Nyala town during the forcible relocation from the camp on Tuesday returned to the camp site on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said its monitors were reporting rising violence by government and rebel groups, especially the Sudan Liberation Army (SLM/A), across the north.
Rape, physical harassment, killings and other violence were continuing outside IDP camps in west Darfur, the spokesman said.
