July 2010 Security Update

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

After assessing security reports for the past month, UNAMID estimates the number of fatalities due to armed conflict and criminality in Darfur in June to be at 221. The majority of these deaths, nearly 140, are believed to be due to inter-tribal fighting between the Rizeigat and Misseriya. However, no such fighting has been reported after the two tribes signed a peace accord on 28 June.

Meanwhile, the security situation in Darfur has been relatively calm but unpredictable in the past 24 hours.
