Civilians in Darfur

An operation called Spring Basket is underway to facilitate access for humanitarian agencies in Darfur.

The operation launched by the joint United Nations-African Union mission in Darfur, UNAMID, at the beginning of the month, is aimed at opening access to the Jebel Marra region and other parts of North and West Darfur.

United Nations agencies believe that people in these areas may be in dire need of humanitarian assistance.

Oriano Micaletti who is in charge of humanitarian affairs at UNAMID told Derrick Mbatha that there have been negotiations with the government of Sudan and the Sudanese movements to open access to these areas.
