COMBINED LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT
CLA (English) TEST # 60
INCIDENT AT WAREHOUSE OF WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME (WFP)
FIRST PART of CLA (Reading)
PATROL REPORT
On 16 August 2009, at about 09.00 hours the United Nations Police (UNPOL) Patrol Team from Community Police Centre (CPC) Nyala arrived at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Kalma Camp during their weekly patrol plan. The Patrol Team was composed of five UNPOL Officers from CPC Nyala, travelling in two Toyota Land-Cruisers registration plates UN-23876 and UN-23462. The Team was escorted by a section from the Nepalese Formed Police Unit (FPU) based in Nyala Team Site (TS) lead by Mr. Kay Rabindra. The FPU Section was moving in two 4x4 pick-ups and one Armored Personnel Carrier (APC).

The Patrol Commander was the CPC Team Leader Ms. Halima Mwanga (CP-45763) from Zambia. They travelled the 40 km distance between the Team Site and the IDP Camp in almost two hours due to the difficulties encountered in the terrain and poor road conditions, in the rainy season. The visit was of paramount importance because of the complete absence of UNPOL presence in the area since the beginning of the rainy season and also in view of recent information about the presence of militia groups operating in the area. 
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 01
Upon arrival at the IDP Camp, the UNPOL patrol went directly to the house of the IDP Camp Traditional Chief. However, they were informed that the Camp Chief had left very early that day in order to visit the local governor at Nyala village.  The UNPOL Team then moved to the IDP Camp Manager’s Office, located at the “Area 51” within the IDP Camp. The location is well known and visible from all parts in the Camp, because of the large World Food Program (WFP) warehouse located there. Many of the Non-Governmental Organization (NGOs) had established their containerized Field Offices in that location, so it is also informally known as the “Humanitarian Area”. 
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 02
Once at the location, the UNPOL Team met the IDP Camp Manager Mr. Giovanni Bosco, the Office of Coordination for Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) representative, just outside his office. Around 09.30 hours, the UNPOL Team was surprised by the sudden noise of what appeared to be a gun battle. It appeared that the shooting incident was very close to the UNPOL location.  Immediately the UNPOL officers took protection by lying beside their UN vehicles, while they saw the OCHA representative running away towards his office, seeking safeguard. The Nepalese FPU immediately established a security perimeter around the location, using their APC vehicle to secure the access road leading to the site. The FPU Section commander reported the incident over the radio to the Joint Operations Centre (JOC) at Nyala TS. After several minutes of fierce gunfire, the shooting stopped.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 03
After verifying that all the members of the UNPOL Patrol Team were accounted for and in good health condition, as well as the humanitarian officials at the OCHA Office, the Patrol Commander decided to investigate the causes of the gunfire. She requested some of her UNPOL colleagues stay at the OCHA Office, while she left accompanied by UNPOL Officer Dario Garcia (CP-5478) on board the Nepalese FPU APC Vehicle. At about 50 meters away from the OCHA Office, and just around the corner of the WFP warehouse, they noticed the presence of several local military personnel.  They also noticed a KAMAZ military vehicle equipped with a heavy machine gun, positioned at the corner of the warehouse.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 04
The UNPOL Team was informed that at about 09.30 hours one of the security guards posted at the WFP warehouse saw the unauthorized entry of a large truck moving towards the warehouse. The truck was carrying several armed personnel. The security guard warned the driver to stop the truck, but the armed men started shooting at him. He repelled the aggression by using his AK-47 rifle. The exchange of fire caught the attention of the military garrison stationed outside the IDP Camp. The military personnel immediately got onboard their KAMAZ vehicle and engaged the assailants. The exchange of gunfire between the local military personnel and the assailants lasted for about 15 minutes. The attackers left the place on board their truck.

NARRATIVE
When reaching the spot of the incident, the UNPOL Team noticed the presence of an armed KAMAZ military vehicle belonging to the local military forces and personnel that were very nervous and exasperated. By interviewing the Sudanese military commanding officer at the scene, Captain Mohammed Bashir, the UNPOL Team Leader learned that the gunfire originated when a Mercedes-Benz truck carrying several armed men, allegedly belonging to one of the militia groups operating in the area appeared in the Camp with clear hostile intentions. The truck didn´t stop at the military check-point at the IDP Camp and attempted to break into the World Food Programme (WFP) warehouse. The Sudanese soldiers stationed just outside the IDP Camp were alerted of the situation, they moved to the location and engaged in a fierce gun battle that lasted about 15 minutes, forcing the attackers to leave the place. No military personnel were injured during the attack, however one of the WFP security guards sustained a bullet wound to the left shoulder. He was given first aid by military personnel and then evacuated to the medical clinic of the Medecins-Sans-Frontiers (MSF) at “Area 51”. According to the military personnel the local security guard should be commended as he faced and confronted the attackers alone until the arrival of the military forces. He was seen being taken to the clinic, and was doing fine. Someone informed that he is a former member of the military or a policeman. Not one of the attackers was apprehended, killed and/or left behind, however the local military discovered some emergency bandages and traces of blood at the location where the attackers were engaging the military forces.  The attackers were identified as members of one of the militia rebel groups operating in the area since a few months, known as "Intihari", and the reasons for the attack were believed to be because of the recent delivery of fuel and medicine supplies to the WFP warehouse. The attackers are being pursued by a Special Operations Platoon from the military, with the support of a helicopter, and personnel dispatched from Nyala Regional HQ. They intend to chase, locate and apprehend the perpetrators of this attack. The local military forces have not ruled out any possibility; however they do not believe that the attackers may come back again to the IDP Camp. The following is the dialogue between UNPOL Team Leader Ms. Halima Mwanga and the Army Commanding Officer Captain Mohammed Bashir, of the Sudanese military detachment.
DIALOGUE
UNPOL Officer:      Al Sallam Allaikoum, good morning. I am the UNPOL Team Leader of the Community Police Centre (CPC) Nyala, and would like to ask you the details of what just happened here.

Capt Bashir:                Good morning to you too. I am Captain Mohammed Bashir, from the 103 Regiment of Northern Region, and I am the Commanding Officer of the military detachment stationed outside the IDP - Kalma Camp.

UNPOL Officer:         We were just outside the OCHA Office at Area 51, when we heard the shooting. Can you tell us what happened exactly?   

Capt Bashir:                Well, we were at the military camp, when some of my soldiers noticed that a Mercedes-Benz truck carrying armed men was passing by the check-point and entered the Camp without stopping, moving towards Area 51. My personnel realized then that it was an attack, and we came in full force to protect the warehouse and to respond to this attack.  

UNPOL Officer:         Have you been able to identify the attackers, or their intentions?    

Capt Bashir:                We know that in the area there have been many rebel movements operating for several months, however based on our gathered intelligence, we are quite sure that these attackers are part of the newly organized militia group known as "Intihari", that had been recently seen operating in the area.

UNPOL Officer:         Do you know the reasons or the motives for their attack against the WFP warehouse?

Capt Bashir:                We believe that most likely they realized that the warehouse received a large supply of fuel and medicine a few days ago, and I am pretty sure that they launched the attack in order to steal these goods.

UNPOL Officer:         Were there any casualties as a consequence of this attack?

Capt Bashir:           Unfortunately the WFP local security guard was hit by a bullet on his left shoulder, nothing serious I believe. He was assisted immediately by our soldiers and then transferred to the Medecins-Sans-Frontiers (MSF) Clinic in the "Area 51". There are no casualties among our forces.

UNPOL Officer:         And what about the assailants, was anybody injured? Were you able to capture any of them?

Capt. Bashir:               Well, I am not sure on the status of the attackers. You know very well they do not leave their own people behind, even if they are killed. So everyone was evacuated in the same truck they came in.  We could not detain nor find anyone left behind, however we found some traces of blood and first-aid emergency bandages scattered all around the area from where they were fighting us.

UNPOL Officer:         Do you know anything about the status of the local security agent that was on duty at the WFP warehouse?

Capt Bashir:               Well that guy is a hero, he faced and confronted the attackers alone, without his prompt reaction I am sure that the perpetrators would have been able to gain access to the warehouse and take away all they wanted. I remember someone told me that he was a former member of the military or a policeman.

UNPOL Officer:         Is there anyone following the attackers or trying to capture them?

Capt Bashir:              I have dispatched one of my Lieutenants in charge of the Special Operations Platoon to follow the attackers. We are also expecting that a reinforced platoon will be dispatched from Regional HQ to assist in this operation, even with the support of a helicopter.

UNPOL Officer:      What about the security of the IDP camp? Do you believe that the IDP population might be targeted by this same group in the future?

Capt Bashir:                This is very difficult to predict. However we are not ruling out any possibility. We know these groups do not attack the camps unless there is something attractive for them, like in this case, the fuel and medicine. Anyhow we are very close, also the police are working with us, so I do not believe they will come again.

UNPOL Officer:         Captain Bashir, many thanks for your time, we are heading back to  "Area 51." Have a nice day!        

Capt Bashir:                Enjoy the rest of the day and wishing you a safe journey back to Nyala village. Please inform the Humanitarian officials they do not have to worry; we are here to protect the IDP camp.

UNPOL Officer:         Many thanks for your reassurance. I will pass your message to them.  Massalamah.

Capt Bashir:                Massalamah.
