UN rights deputy sees risk of new war in Sudan

“A senior U.N. human rights official warned Wednesday of the risk that full-blown war may break out again between north and south Sudan if clashes in the border areas spread.

Fighting between north Sudan’s military and elements linked to the South Sudan People’s Liberation Army, or SPLA, has persisted along the provisional border ahead of the south’s formal secession July 9. The conflicts center on long-standing ethnic disputes, but also on access to cattle-grazing areas and the future of the oil-rich region of Abyei, in what is currently part of north Sudan’s South Kordofan state.”
