Situation Update: IDPs in UNMISS Base, Bor, Jonglei State, South Sudan (31 December 2013)


This map illustrates the camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) that was created adjacent to the base for the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) in the town of Bor, South Sudan. Imaged by the WorldView-2 satellite on 31 December 2013, the IDP camp initially hosted about 14,000 persons and the adjacent UNMISS base includes troops from India, Nepal, South Korea, and Rwanda. The overall number of IDPs has visibly and substantially decreased when compared with the previous UNOSAT analysis of this location done using an image from 23 December. A large area of standing water is visible immediately to the east and south of the IDP area. No visible indications of military hardware, damage, or concentrations of people were found in the immediate vicinity of the UNMISS base. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
