For weeks, Bahaadin Adam had heard nothing from family members stuck in the fighting that convulsed Nyala, the capital of South Darfur state and the second largest city in Sudan.
Mr. Adam, who had fled weeks before to neighboring South Sudan, remained jittery, constantly checking his phone for updates.
“I was broken into pieces,” Mr. Adam said in a recent interview in Renk town in South Sudan.
Five months after a devastating war began in Sudan between rival military forces, the western region of Darfur has quickly become one of the hardest hit in the nation.
People in Darfur have already suffered genocidal violence over the past two decades that has left as many as 300,000 people dead.
