The UN denies evacuating international staff from Abyei

13 February 2008 (Miraya FM)

The director of the UN office in Abyei Chris Johnson has denied media reports that international employees have been evacuated from Abyei because of renewed fighting between the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) and armed men from the Al-Messeiria tribe.

The UN official told Miraya FM that the situation in the area is stable, adding that there are fears of renewed violent acts. The clashes between SPLA and the tribesmen left five SPLA soldiers dead.
