Kalma IDP camp attackedThe Sudanese army, using at least 60 armored vehicles, has invaded Kalma camp, which shelters some 90,000 displaced Darfuris. As of this morning, my sources on the ground report 30 displaced persons have been killed and (according to MSF)at least 65 wounded. Most are women and children. Homes are on fire and heavy shooting is ripping through the camp. All aid agencies have withdrawn from the camp as UNHCR is trying to negotiate access to evacuate the wounded.
The UN MUST speak out now!
UNAMID is NOWHERE to be seen.
