Sudan Issues Serious Warning

The Sudanese government has urged UNAMID peacekeepers to leave the Darfur town of Muhajiriya, warning that an attack against rebels is imminent.

We are not ordering them around, we are asking them…It’s sort of like informing them, “Something will be happening here”.

Despite the threats, UNAMID has refused to flee.

We are not going to leave when there are thousands of displaced people around our camp.

Today, the UN and the US “encouraged”the Justice and Equality Movement, the rebel group currently in control of Muhajiriya, to surrender the town.

Reports indicate that the Sudanese army is advancing upon Muhajiriya from three directions. Its intent to storm the town is moving forward with full force.
