Situation Remains Tense in Abyei

The situation in and around the disputed Sudanese region of Abyei remains tense with close to 40,000 people said to be fleeing the ongoing unrest.
A monitoring group said on Wednesday that satellite images indicate evidence of "war crimes" committed by Sudan’s northern army in Abyei.
This comes days after the Sudanese Armed Forces took control of Abyei town which is close to the oil fields in southern Sudan's Unity State and at the same time lies in South Kordofan State, the only oil-producing state in northern Sudan.
