More than 600 people have been left homeless, destitute, and without food after a fire that broke out at camp El Neem north of Ed Daein in East Darfur destroyed 100 homes on Wednesday.

One of the camp sheikhs explained that the intense wind helped the fire to spread. Provisions and agricultural crops were also destroyed, however no injuries or loss of life were reported.

The sheikh appealed to the authorities and organisations to speed up the provision of aid to those affected.
