Three WFP warehouses looted in North Darfur

December 28, 2021

28-29 December 2021: In El Fasher city, North Darfur state, hundreds of ordinary people, military personnel and rebel fighters attacked all three WFP warehouses and stole more than 5,000 metric tonnes of food and nutrition aid. The perpetrators also dismantled warehouse structures. In response, local authorities imposed a curfew across the province, whereas WFP suspended its operations, affecting two million locals. On 30 December, police arrested an unspecified number of suspects after they were seen riding trucks and animal-drawn carts loaded with food stocks that were allegedly stolen from the WFP warehouses.
