People affected by inter-communal conflict in El Geneina start returning home
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) estimates that 27,995 people (6,126 families) remain displaced across 35 sites in El Geneina town, West Darfur State. This is a decrease of 9,913 people since the last update on 25 February.
Humanitarian agencies will continue to support the remaining IDPs in El Geneina. Inter-communal violence between Massalit and Arab tribesmen in and around El Geneina town in late December 2019, led to the displacement of some 40,000 people, of whom about 32,000 were IDPs from Krinding 1, Krinding 2, and Al Sultan IDP camps. In addition, an estimated 10,000 people fled across the border into Chad, taking refuge in villages near the border. Over 50 people were reportedly killed and about 60 injured.
