The UN refugee agency (UNHCR) is concerned for the security of tens of thousands of refugees and displaced people in Chad as the security situation rapidly deteriorates following clashes in the east of the country between the Chadian army and rebel groups over the weekend. UNHCR is closely monitoring the security situation, which remains fluid. UNHCR has maintained its presence in all 12 refugee camps in the east, which host some 250,000 refugees from the neighboring Darfur region of Sudan, but as a precautionary measure had to restrict staff movements and its activities.
