Media Monitoring Report, 13 February 2008
Miseriya tribe has blocked a road linking north and south Sudan and ambushed vehicles passing through Abyei region, SPLM officials said yesterday. “The north-east part of Abyei is very sensitive now”, said Edward Lino, Abyei representative for SPLM.
“The Miseriya nomads have blocked the road. It is the main road to Abyei and the major route to the south”. The senior SPLM official said the nomads had attacked at least two buses, shooting at one and looting the other.
