Sudan: Battling to bring aid to thousands of Abyei displaced

Published on 07 June 2011

Warrap state in southern Sudan is becoming the focus of efforts to assist thousands of people fleeing the disputed central-southern region of Abyei after it was attacked on 21 May by the northern Sudanese army, aid workers say. (..) "This operation is facing logistical challenges. In the weeks to come, with the advance of the rainy season, the challenges will become greater," said Margherita Coco, who was responsible for the World Food Programme (WFP) sub-office in Abyei until the attack forced WFP to abandon its work there.
