Se réfugier au Darfour/ Fleeing to Darfur

Selon l’ONU, le conflit au Tchad force des milliers de personnes à se réfugier… au Darfur (en anglais), même si cette région est en crise. Cela indique que la situation régionale prend une tournure encore plus complexe.

According to the United Nations, thousands of people are finding refuge in Darfur because they’re fleeing neighbouring Chad who’s suffering from an internal conflict. The regional situation is therefore taking a more complicated turn…


Thousands of people fleeing conflict in Chad have sought refuge in Sudan’s western region of Darfur despite the humanitarian crisis there, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said on Thursday.

An estimated 20,000 Chadians have sought refuge in West Darfur since 2005, while 16,000 had opted to remain close to the border to access their land. “These people are fleeing the conflict in their country to camps in West Darfur where there is food and security,” said Annette Rehrl, UNHCR spokeswoman in Sudan.

Conflict in Darfur has displaced at least two million people since fighting between insurgents and the Sudanese government erupted in 2003. About 230,000 Sudanese refugees are sheltered in camps and along border areas in eastern Chad.
