During a recent spate of attacks in Darfur, the UN’s food relief agency has lost more than 100 vehicles. The increased violence has kept desperately needed food out of the mouths of a vulnerable population displaced from years of violence. In recent weeks, all food aid has travelled in heavily guarded convoys.
The Sudanese army could protect the humanitarian convoys (as they agreed to in UN RES 1769) but they have other, more pressing priorities; they are busy attacking Darfur’s people.
