UN rights expert warns Darfur security 'unpredictable'

United Nations independent expert on the situation of human rights in Sudan gives a press conference in the capital Khartoum on April 28, 2016A senior UN rights official warned Thursday that the security situation in Darfur remained “fluid and unpredictable”, two days after Sudan said the region’s conflict that killed hundreds of thousands of people had ended. Sudan held a referendum in Darfur earlier this month on whether to unite it into a single autonomous region, and on Saturday said that almost 98 percent of voters had opted to keep the region as five states. Khartoum said the result of the referendum clearly showed that the conflict in Darfur — a region roughly the size of France — had finally ended.
