13:00 Press Release

1300: We have received reports via SMS text that a UN convoy carrying food supplies was ambushed outside of the IDP camp by an unknown group.  Additionally, a significant population of the IDP camp has left the area; reports indicate that this group is traveling to the capitol city to partake in an impromptu election, and because people believe that there will be food available in the capitol.  This migration, however, is leading the group through a combat zone.  NGOs are unable to ensure protection of citizens outside of the camp.  The Crisis Mapping team would like to encourage all citizens to make personal safety their first priority, and to continue sending SMS texts for aid to +16176826346.
