In Sudan's restive Darfur region, some 4,000 displaced people are now living under trees following a deadly fire which destroyed the camp they were living in.

The incident occurred earlier this month at the Korma camp, located some 80 km from El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur State and home to the headquarters of the hybrid African Union-UN Assistance Mission in Darfur (UNAMID).

UNAMID troops helped extinguish the fire and provided first aid to the injured, while UN and local humanitarian groups brought relief supplies, including water bladders, jerry cans, sleeping mats and cooking sets.

Jumbe Omari Jumbe accompanied UN officials who travelled to the site and filed this report.
