Darfur - Sudan

This my very 1st card from Sudan. Like the Mt. Athos card, this one was also sent by Emerich.

Darfur is a region in western Sudan. An independent sultanate for several hundred years, it was incorporated into Sudan by Anglo-Egyptian forces in 1916. The region is divided into five federal states: Central Darfur, East Darfur, North Darfur, South Darfur and West Darfur. Because of the war in Darfur between Sudanese government forces and the non-Arab indigenous population, the region has been in a state of humanitarian emergency from 2003 to 2009/2010. - in: wikipedia
