Arson Attack at IDP Camp

While Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir taunted the ICC by traveling to Egypt, arsonists started a fire at an IDP camp in West Darfur – killing at least two people and destroying 600 shelters.

Reports have emerged that describe the arsonists as armed men, some in uniform, who entered the camp during the middle of the night.

The fire, fueled by strong winds, damaged a quarter of the camp – home to 6,000 people.

JEM rebels blame state-backed militias for the fire –

This is part of a government campaign to clear people out of the camps.

The fire is currently under control.
