Sudanese people, originally from Darfur, are returning from Libya to Malha (North Darfur) and are concentrating at the local authorities check point outside the village. Malha, Sudan. 07/03/2011
The returnees are about 60 (mostly women and children) and they arrived on Sunday 6 March from villages located in South Libya. The returnees, mainly migrant workers belonging to Zaghawa and Meidob tribes, left Sudan some years ago to search for job opportunities in Libya.
They are now returning from Libya since they have lost their jobs due to the current crisis as well as for alleged security concerns. The local authorities in Malha are expecting 40 more trucks from Libya (more than 2,000 returnees) for the coming days and they asked help from the UN agencies (UNICEF, OCHA, WHO, UNHCR) to attend all of them.
