Security incidents in Darfur forces aid agencies to scale back activities, UN says

1 November 2004

Some relief agencies have been forced to scale back aid operations and relocate staff due to security incidents in the three Darfur states, the United Nations mission in Sudan said today.

Meanwhile in the country's south, the UN Advance Mission in Sudan (UNAMIS) reported, crops are being harvested in many areas due to improved rains since August, leading lead to improved food security over the next three months.

The UN's envoy for Sudan, Jan Pronk, is in New York to submit his 30-day report to Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Mr. Pronk is scheduled to brief the Security Council on Thursday.
