FEWS NET Alert Status
The general security situation in Central, Eastern and Western Equatoria States is stable but tense due to alleged Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) movements and activities in the Maridi areas in Western Equatoria State as well as along the Juba-Torit road in Central and Eastern Equatoria States. The Juba-Rokon road is now safe as the Dinka herdsmen, who were considered a security risk on that road, have now moved away from the Mundri area in Western Equatoria on their way back to Bor.
The situation is tense on the Juba-Torit and Juba-Nimule roads and in areas surrounding Gumbo and Rejaf where the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has been launching attacks almost on a daily basis, looting food, cows, goats and property. Confirmed police sources indicate that the LRA has its base at Lungi Hill, approximately four kilometres south of Gumbo. There has been no positive response from the security forces based in the Gumbo vicinity to protect the civilian population.
The security situation in Yei and the surrounding areas remained tense and volatile following the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) migration from its traditional area in Eastern Equatoria.

Most of the current Desert Locust activity is concentrated along both sides of the Chad/Sudan border and on the Red Sea coastal plains in northeast Eritrea. In the past few days, there have been a few unconfi rmed reports of swarms in Chad. Ground control operations are in progress in the three countries. Local breeding is underway in the interior of Yemen. The situation is calmer in the western part of the Sahel in West Africa where only low numbers of solitarious adults have been detected in Mauritania, Mali and Niger.
Update of ENSO:
General Situation as of 21 July 2005
The Desert Locust situation continues to be a cause of concern in Chad and western Sudan where breeding is in progress and there is a risk of an outbreak developing. Low numbers of new swarms could start to form in eastern Chad in the coming weeks. So far, very few locusts have been seen in southern Mauritania, northern Mali and Niger but good rains have fallen in most of these areas and ecological conditions are favourable for breeding. Seasonal forecasts suggest that good rainfall will continue in August and September.
21 July 2005, Rome - Intensive and wide-ranging locust monitoring and control operations need to be continued in the next months in frontline countries in the Sahel such as Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Sudan, FAO said today.
