Residents of camps for the internally displaced in the Sudanese region of Darfur have been voicing their concerns to the top UN official there.

Joint Special Representative for the UN Hybrid Mission in Darfur, Martin Uhomoibhi, toured several camps in the region where rebels have been fighting Sudanese government troops for thirteen years.

One camp leader said that in all that time they had "never witnessed any peace" and warned Darfur could "become hell" if the joint UN-African Union mission, UNAMID, left.
