After 12 years in Darfur, Chadian refugees finally return home

While 220,000 Darfuri refugees in Chad mull over whether they feel safe going home, a smaller, little-known group has made the exact opposite exodus from Darfur back to Chad. Some 9,000 Chadian refugees, many who had been living in Makjar and Um Shalaya camps in Darfur, Sudan, were resettled across the border in their native Chad, helped by the UN High Commission for Refugees. One family, who has been back in Chad just one month, spoke about fleeing from, and returning to, Chad.
