Sudan: Transport Between El Fasher and Nyala in North Darfur Forbidden for 25 Consecutive Days

Nyala — Government authorities have forbidden the movement of all vehicles between El Fasher and Nyala in North Darfur for twenty five consecutive days.

Government authorities have forbidden the movement of all vehicles between El Fasher and Nyala in North Darfur for twenty five consecutive days. This has resulted in a lack of medicine, fuel and acute shortages of drinking water in the IDP camp of Shangil Tobaya. A leader of the IDP camp tells Radio Dabanga that grain mills grinded to a halt due to the lack of fuel. Residence are forced to use rocks to grind grains. The lack of medicine has resulted in residents taking refuge in traditional medicine. He tells how the IDPs of camp Shangil Tobaya are forced to stand in long lines for millet and maize. It takes them five days to get to El Fasher for medical treatment and to purchase food.
