Peacekeepers on patrol in North Darfur

Thousands of people have been displaced by inter-ethnic fighting between the Abbala and Beni Hussein communities at the Jabel Amir gold mines in North Darfur state.

On 13 January, the United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) deployed a team to the three villages of Saraf Omra, Kabkabya and El Sereif affected by the violence.

UNAMID is also conducting security escorts so that humanitarian workers can reach the people who need health care, water, food as well as other basic items such as shelter and blankets.

To find out more about this crisis which has reportedly left over 100 people dead, UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha called UNAMID Spokesperson Aicha Elbasri in Darfur.
