Description Pictures show a wadi, a dried-up river bed in the Mornei IDP camp in West Darfur, Sudan on June 9, 2004. By mid 2004 in the Darfur region of western Sudan, ongoing conflict had displaced approximately 1.2 million people, most of whom were fleeing terror attacks by armed militia that included large-scale killings and abductions, including of children, as well as gang rapes, looting and burning of villages and stealing of livestock. Thousands have died from these attacks or from disease and tens of thousands of others have gathered in camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs), with little or no belongings and without adequate shelter, food or safe water and sanitation. An additional 120,000 people, primarily children and women, have fled across the border into neighbouring Chad. An estimated two million people have been affected by this crisis and are being further threatened by the imminent rainy season which will hinder access and increase the risk of disease.
