Briefing the Security Council, via video conference, Jeremiah Mamabolo the head of the AU-UN Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) also said there was “continuing concern” voiced by displaced civilians (IDPs) over continued attacks and harassment, the destruction of farms, land occupation and livestock theft.“UNAMID continues to focus on early warning, preventive measures, capacity-building and efforts to address the root causes of conflicts,” he said.The Mission was established in 2007 following a brutal civil war that broke out in 2003 and led to the deaths of tens of thousands of Darfuris and the displacement of nearly two million civilians, amidst allegations of ethnic cleansing of non-Arabs. Widespread atrocities, including murder and rape were reported in the fighting between Sudanese Government troops and militias and other armed rebel groups.Mr Mamabolo told Council Members that on the humanitarian front, aid agencies continue to provide assistance to people in need, despite limited funding and problems accessing some affected areas.Drawing attention to the importance of upholding the highest principles of human rights, the senior UN official noted a decrease in new cases of human rights violations and abuses in the areas the Mission is responsible for.Some 134 new cases involving 304 victims were documented by UNAMID during the current reporting period, compared to 169 cases involving just 508 victims in the period 16 February-10 June, he said, noting that most violations were reported in and around internally displaced persons (IDP) camps.“Our focus should be on building the capacity of the Government of Sudan to deal squarely with these challenges and to discharge its primary responsibility of protecting civilians and IDPs, providing security, addressing lack of confidence in reporting cases to authorities and lack of adequate law enforcement authorities and inability to provide basic social services.”In his briefing, Mr. Mamabolo also told the 15-member Council that the Mission has embarked on its reconfiguration and drawdown, and is in the process of relocating its headquarters from El Fasher to Zalingei.Alongside the reduction of military personnel at the Mission, the process is being finalized to reduce civilian staff – both national and international, he added. In addition, ten team sites are slated for closure by the end of the year and three sector headquarters by June next year.“We continue to monitor the impact on the security situation and protection of civilian in areas from which UNAMID has withdrawn. So far, we have not witnessed any adverse impact,” he said.
Powerscreen, one of the world’s leading providers of mobile crushing and screening equipment, launches the new Warrior 1400X screen. Damian Power, Powerscreen Global Product Director said: “The new Powerscreen® Warrior 1400X offers improved performance, lower operating costs, and easier serviceability while building on the reliable foundation of our class-leading Warrior 1400 scalper.” It has been designed with economy in mind, with reduced engine running speed and enhanced hydraulics, the 1400X offers a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 15% in comparison to its predecessor. This can translate into a substantial financial saving for customers over the lifetime of the machine.Improved versatility and design specifications are other key achievements of the Warrior 1400X, with the screening angle range widening of 13°-19°. Standard stockpiling capacity on all conveyors has increased by up to 25%. With the chassis riser option and the telescopic side conveyor option, the fines and mid-grade stockpiling capacity is increased to more than double that of a standard Warrior 1400.Time required for set-up and shutdown is faster than the previous model, which will be of particular benefit to contractors. Serviceability features include a class leading screen box raise function and the unique ability to raise the collection conveyor. Optimal chute design in conjunction with the new feeder under-tray slide-out feature will minimise any potential spillage and reduce any harmful material build-up around the machine.The Warrior 1400X now boasts improved mobility with a two speed tracking system as standard. The high speed mode is further enhanced with automatic engine speed ramp-up making the 1400X the fastest tracked machine in its range.The Warrior 1400X can be fitted with either a Tier 3 / Stage 3A Caterpillar C4.4 ATAAC – four-cylinder diesel engine developing 90 kW at 1,800 rpm, or a Tier 4i / Stage 3B Caterpillar C4.4 – four-cylinder diesel engine developing 82 kW at 1,800 rpm.
