Clashes in Sudan’s Darfur Force 103,000 to Flee Homes, UN Says

Fighting between Sudanese government forces and rebels in a mountainous area of Darfur has forced more than 102,700 people to flee their homes since mid-January, the United Nations said.

Violence in Jebel Marra, which straddles three states in the western Sudanese region, has spurred the majority to seek shelter in North Darfur, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said Thursday in an e-mailed bulletin.
