A quarter of a million people have fled their homes in Darfur in the last year, the joint UN-African Union mission in the Sudanese region, UNAMID, has said.

They're escaping intensified fighting between government forces and armed opposition groups.

Only half of the displaced have received assistance from humanitarian agencies.

UNAMID is stepping in to provide immediate support, as Jumbe Omari Jumbe reports from Darfur.
