UNAMID calls for restraint over recent violence in East Darfur

By African Union-United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID)

The African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) is deeply concerned over the recent outbreak of violence in East Darfur which on 18 April in El Daein culminated in an attack on the residence of the Wali.

UNAMID calls on all parties involved in these unfortunate events to exercise the utmost restraint and refrain from acts that could further aggravate the situation.

In line with its mandate, UNAMID stands ready to assist civilians in need of protection and support the state authorities in their efforts to bring down tensions through good offices and mediation.
