UNHCR and its partners are dealing with a new wave of displacement in south-eastern Chad following a deadly attack at the weekend against the villages of Tiero and Marena. Preliminary reports by UNHCR and other humanitarian agencies indicate that since Saturday’s attack between 2,000 and 3,000 people have arrived at the Goz Amir refugee camp near the town of Koukou, which is located about 45 km east of the two villages. The camp is home to more than 19,000 Sudanese refugees from the neighboring Darfur region. (UN News)
