UNAMID reports suggest issue resolved peacefully after meeting with police
A dispute broke out between herders and farmers in Karime and Fatra villages in North Darfur earlier this week.The fight took place when the farmers residing in the villages captured 42 camels belonging to herders. The herders had left the camels to graze in the farm lands.
The farmers brought the captured camels to the United Nations-African Union joint mission in Darfur (UNAMID) office, after which the mission arranged for a meeting between the farmers, the herders, the local leaders, Sudanese military and police. The UNAMID reported that the issue was solved peacefully.
The conflict between herders and farmers is inherent in many areas of Sudan.
