Darfur update

The UN special envoy for Darfur has again expressed concern over the security
and humanitarian situation in the Sudanese region, where violence displaced at
least 30,000 civilians in October alone, and led to the deaths of seven
humanitarian workers.
According to Jean-Marie Guéhenno, UN Under-Secretary-General Peacekeeping Operations, the first elements of the AU Mission in Sudan have been deployed, including a 140-strong police unit and an engineering unit of 135. UNAMID's deployment is being delayed by red tape and a lack of transport units.
