UNHCR-run camp at Goz Amer camp which houses some 17,700 refugees from Sudan's Darfur region. An armed group entered the camp in the afternoon on April 11th 2006 during a food distribution. This action clearly frightened the refugees and is of deep concern to UNHCR and its partners. A group of 118 staff from various aid groups, including three staff from UNHCR, were unable to leave the camp yesterday evening. The situation in the camp last night and early this morning was reported as calm and humanitarian workers who had overnighted in the camp, could leave the camp.
