The joint African Union/UN mission in Darfur, UNAMID, carries out up to 100 patrols each day in the region and is frequently attacked by militia groups

The Special Representative for UNAMID is Professor Ibrahim Gambari.

“We are working with authorities at the national, state and local levels to address the issue of impunity because that’s also a threat not just to peacekeepers but also the civilian population so that those who may have perpetrated violent acts against civilians, should be promptly arrested, they should be tried and should be punished to the full extent of the law.”
