UN warns of new flashpoint in Sudan’s Darfur region

United Nations (United States) (AFP) – Senior UN officials warn the Security Council of the risks of a new front opening in Sudan, around the town of el-Fasher in Darfur, where the population is already on the brink of starvation. After a year of war between the armed forces (SAF) of General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the paramilitaries of the Rapid Support Forces (FSR), under the command of General Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, the country is experiencing “a crisis of epic proportions… wholly man-made,” says Rosemary DiCarlo, UN under-secretary-general for political and peacebuilding affairs.
