This includes 214 495 people who remain displaced across all Darfur states, 63 419 people who returned to their areas of origin, and some other people who have been affected but not displaced. Returns mainly took place in Saraf Omra town in North Darfur after the security situation had improved. (Source: OCHA Sudan)
