WFP Delivers Food to North Darfur IDP Camps

WFP Delivers Food to North Darfur IDP Camps

Taken on 2014-02-10

Ten World Food Programme (WFP) trucks, with two containers each, traveled from El Fasher to Shangil Tobaya to deliver 350 metric tons of food (oil and sorghum) to the Nifasha and Shaddad camps for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). The road trip took more than 8 hours due to difficult road conditions and security challenges for the convoy, which was protected by Ethiopian and Rwandan troops from the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID). UNAMID troops from Rwanda escort a convoy of WFP trucks traveling from El Fasher to Shangil Tobaya.

Central African Republic Civil Crisis, December 2013

Taken on 2013-12-22

The Central African Republic conflict is a civil war in the Central African Republic between the Séléka rebel coalition and government forces, which began on 10 December 2012. The conflict arose after rebels accused the government of President François Bozizé of failing to abide by peace agreements signed in 2007 and 2011. Many of the rebel groups were previously involved in the Central African Republic Bush War. This VOA Gallery shows Burundian peacekeepers and other African Union peacekeepers attempting to assuage the unrest.
