Growing threat to Southern Sudan: displaced people

The NGO Refugees International released a brief report on 15 December 2011 titled “South Sudan: Displacement Plagues World’s Newest Nation.”

It describes the problem South Sudan faces as tens of thousands of persons fled south following recent fighting in Sudan’s Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile States. Hundreds of thousands of additional people are displaced due to violence within South Sudan and there has been a large influx of southerners returning from northern cities. This crisis could overwhelm South Sudan.
