Doro (9 May .) - A number of Darfuri refugees at Doro camp in Upper Nile, South Sudan have told Radio Dabanga about their ongoing suffering and tragedy of displacement after fleeing from Darfur to Blue Nile in search of refuge.

They said they were forced to flee again from Blue Nile last September when the government started heavily shelling the state.

At first they took shelter in camps in Ethiopia before moving again to Doro camp.

They complained of the lack of services and assistance caused by the government's blockade on humanitarian aid into the camps.
