I would like to congratulate the United States of America on its presidency of the Council this month and thank you for this opportunity to update the Council.

Mr President, Members of the Council

report Radio Dabanga

Sudanese refugees in eastern Chad protest the suspension of food rations since early August.

Sheikh Yahya Adam Nadeef, head of the Congo camp for Darfur refugees in eastern Chad told Radio Dabanga that the Chadian organisation responsible for the distribution of food decided to divide the camp residents into three categories: capable, medium and vulnerable.

“They then announced that only the medium and the weak would receive food rations, but the refugees opposed the change, saying that they all are vulnerable and need support.”
