More than 50,000 Sudanese flee fighting | Globe and Mail
More than 50,000 Sudanese flee fighting
Associated Press

Nairobi, Kenya At least 50,000 people have fled their homes in recent weeks because of militia attacks and fighting between Sudanese government and rebel forces in southern Sudan, the United Nations said Sunday.

The clashes between the government forces and the Sudan People's Liberation Army rebels occurred despite a cease fire between the warring parties, which are involved in talks to end the country's 21-year civil war.

The cease-fire, signed in October 2002, is supposed to remain in force as long as talks continue. But there were no immediate indications that the fighting would derail the negotiations.
