UNAMID reported influx of 3,000 IDPs at Zam Zam Camp in North Darfur

More than 3,000 people have arrived at the Zam Zam camp for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) near El Fasher in North Darfur, in recent days. Many came from the area around the South Darfur town of Muhajeriya, the scene of recent fighting between Government forces and rebels.

As of yesterday, the total number of new individuals who have arrived at Zam Zam Camp - either by truck or by donkey - stands at 3,054 from 878 households, with a particularly large influx on 8 and 9 February.

The people arriving by donkey hail mostly from Abu Dangal, 30 km west of Shearia in South Darfur and other small villages, while people arriving on trucks are coming from Muhajeriya town, according to the leaders of the new arrivals.
