Clashes between the Government and armed groups in Darfur decreased significantly, although an unsuccessful attempt was made by the Sudan Liberation Army-Minni Minawi (SLA/MM) and allied forces, and the arms collection campaign by the Government spurred clashes with Musa Hilal and allied forces. The activities of the Sudan Liberation Army-Abdul Wahid (SLA/AW) remained limited to pockets of West Jebel Marra. While the situation in South Kordofan, Blue Nile and Abyei was relatively stable, divisions within the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) reportedly resulted in ethnic clashes. Throughout the year, unilateral ceasefires were extended in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile.
