Two children died of malnutrition on Thursday and many more are in danger among the displaced people taking refuge in the Lobe area, eight kilometres west of Deribat in East Jebel Marra.

About 2,500 people who fled from government attacks on Sorong, Rofta, and Boly in February, are reportedly suffering from difficult humanitarian conditions, with a lack of food and tents. Many of the children are malnourished.

Activists told Radio Dabanga that Hanan Babiker Eisa (8) and Ibrahim Hamid Jaafar (5) are the latest casualties.

The activists said that the displaced people in Lobe area are living in the open with no shelter from the rain. They have received no aid since their displacement in February.

They appealed to humanitarian organisations to speed up the provision of relief to these displaced people.
