Update on security situation        
On 27 August, unidentified men attempted to break into UNAMID’s camp in Mellit, located approximately 65 kilometers north of El Fasher, North Darfur, but fled when an alarm was raised. A similar incident took place on 26 August at the Mission’s teamsite in Kutum, situated roughly 100 kilometers northwest of El Fasher. Security measures at all UNAMID bases have been increased.

The situation at Kalma internally displaced persons (IDP) camp in South Darfur remains relatively stable. IDP representatives yesterday submitted a letter to UNAMID’s Community Policing Center (CPC) conveying their commitment to stop weapons use among youth in the camp.
