TINA ( 12 Mar .)

At least 203 Sudanese refugee students living in an eastern Chad camp have traveled to North Darfur to take their primary level exams, a teacher who accompanied them said, adding there are no examination centers in the camp.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, Abdullah Abkar said pupils from camp Mile are taking the tests in Tina, where they were warmly received by the commissioner. He said that "due to eagerness for their education, parents of the students are paying for the transportation costs from Mile to Tina”.

Abkar noted the pupils, who are under the protection of the joint Sudanese-Chadian forces, have arrived in Tina on 6 March and are expected to take their tests between 9 and 14 March.
