UNAMID to Withdraw from Two Sites in W. Darfur in November

KHARTOUM - (Sudan Tribune) The hybrid peacekeeping mission in Darfur (UNAMID) would hand over Morny and Mistry sites to West Darfur government next November, said West Darfur minister of urban planning Faisal Hassan Haroun
Haroun said that  UNAMID would evacuate Morny site in the locality of Krinding and Mistry site in the locality of Baida in November while the Mission’s main site in El-Geniena would be evacuated next year.
He pointed out that West Darfur government is developing alternatives for the future use of the sites, saying the governor has conducted a field visit to the sites to see how it can be used for civilian purposes.
Last year, the UN Security Council decided to reduce the UNAMID, admitting that the security situation has improved in the Darfur region.
