UN: More than 1,200 children died in war-torn Sudan’s camps since May

Over 1,200 children died from measles and malnutrition since May in Sudan refugee camps, the UN said Tuesday, AFP reports.
“This is due to a combination of a suspected measles outbreak and high malnutrition.”
Dr. Maina’s sombre statement was underscored by his grim forecast: “Regrettably, we anticipate that these numbers will continue to rise.”
These infants, along with their mothers, are in dire need of skilled delivery care, the report added.
