UN: Darfur is now “low-intensity conflict”
Today, Louis Charbonneau of Reuters reported:
Briefing the U.N. Security Council, the joint U.N.-African Union special representative to Darfur, Rodolphe Adada, told the 15 member states that around 130-150 people were dying each month due to violence in Darfur, a region roughly the size of France.
“The situation has changed from the period of intense hostilities in 2003-2004 when tens of thousands of people were killed,” Adada told the council. “Today, in purely numerical terms it is a low-intensity conflict.”
