Do We Really Care?

Refugees flee from Darfur to Chad

More than two million have been displaced from Darfur
About 12,000 people have fled western Sudan into neighbouring Chad, with more expected to follow after deadly attacks on Darfur villages, the UN has said.

Sudan's government said it had launched the attacks against fighters from the Justice and Equality Movement.

But Darfur rebels denied their men had been in the targeted villages and said as many as 200 civilians were killed.

At least two million people have been displaced by the conflict in Darfur, many fleeing west to Chad.

Rebels said government forces had attacked three villages on Friday using aerial bombardment, troops and the Janjaweed Arab militia.

Large numbers of people have been displaced in the past few days and people continue to flee the violence, according to the UNHCR, the UN's refugee agency.

"Since Friday, following the bombing in west Darfur, 12,000 people have crossed from Darfur to Chad in an area called Birak," said Helene Caux, a spokeswoman for the UNHCR.
