The Sudanese refugees of Bembere camp in the Central African Republic (CAR) are living in severe horror and panic owing to fighting near the camp.

Abdel Rahman Ismail, the head of the camp, revealed to Radio Dabanga that four Muslims were killed 10 km from the camp on Thursday, and the siege prevents residents from leaving the camp. It sparked panic amongst the refugees.

Ismail appealed to the United Nations to provide protection to refugees or resettle them to safe countries.

Meanwhile, the union of organisations in Sudan’s Khartoum state have acknowledged that the number of internally displaced people fleeing the massacres in the CAR has amounted to more than 600. Most live in camps on the Chadian border and the outskirts of West Darfur state.

Hussam El Din Mohamed Osman, a member of the union, has pointed out that there is a campaign to prepare the camps with a healthy environment, and provide assistance to the displaced and refugees.
