1.9 million displaced in Sudan`s Darfur: UN

Almost two million people are displaced in Sudan`s Darfur region, the country`s top UN official said Monday, giving a new figure for the region where violence has worsened this year.



Khartoum: Almost two million people are displaced in Sudan`s Darfur region, the country`s top UN official said Monday, giving a new figure for the region where violence has worsened this year.
"We estimate that the internally displaced people... are close to 1.9 million, and that there are 1.3 million non-IDP`s who are severely affected and/or food insecure," Ali Al-Za`tari said in the capital of North Darfur state.
The UN has already said that at least 460,000 people were displaced by fighting this year. The number dislocated previously during the region`s 10-year-old conflict had been unclear, but was in excess of one million.
