The Sudanese camps where some 2 million refugees live are nearing capacity. According to a new U.N. report on the Darfur crisis, 80,000 people already have fled their homes this year, and some camps have been forced to turn them away.


BBC:

More than 80,000 people have fled violence in the region since the beginning of the year, the report adds.

Two million people are living in camps both within Sudan and in neighbouring Chad since conflict began in 2003.
