KABUL: (Middle East Press) The deadly conflict in Sudan’s highly volatile western region of Darfur has displaced almost over 500,000 people in 2014, said the United Nation on Thursday.
The UN also expressed deep regrets that its observers have not been able to reach out to the people in the village of Tabit, where more than 220 women and girls were allegedly subjected to mass rape last year.
A UN panel of experts has mostly blamed government forces and pro-Khartoum militiamen for the recent uptick in the violence in Darfur and the consequent exodus of people.
Darfur has been the scene of violence since 2003, when rebels took up arms against the government in Khartoum. There has also been tribal fighting in the region.
