People sequestrated in Tindouf Camps suffer ‘inhumane living conditions,’ ex-UNHCR official November 12, 2009

Sahrawi populations are enduring “inhumane living conditions” in Tindouf Camps, South-Western Algeria, said on Tuesday, Edward Benson, ex Officer-in-Charge of confidence-building measures at the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Tindouf populations are suffering “inhumane, brutal and isolated” living conditions, he said in a seminar held at Oxford University.

Benson added that in comparison with other conflicts in the world, the Sahara issue remains “confused regarding Algeria’s implication.”

During the conference, the audience watched a documentary film, made by United Nations Television (UNTV), describing the reunion of a father living in Morocco’s southern provinces with his daughter who lived in Tindouf Camps, within the framework of the family visit exchange program.
