Kalma Camp — A bomb explosion on Friday morning injured nine children - seven seriously - from Kalma camp for Darfuri refugees in eastern Chad.
The camp is close to Umm Dukhun, which recently saw fierce fighting between the Misseriya and Salamat tribes. The unexploded munition could be a remnant from that conflict.
A family member of one of the injured told Radio Dabanga that the children were playing near Umm Dukhun at around 10 am when the munition exploded. The children were taken to Tissi hospital in Chad for treatment.
Authorities and camp leaders across Darfur have repeatedly cautioned civilians, especially children, not to touch any ammunition they find, but to mark its location and point it out to police or other competent authorities.
