Sudan abyei seized 05 22 11

Children and women look on during a visit by the U.S. ambassador to the UN Susan Rice at Mandela camp for displaced southern Sudanese, 30 km south of the capital Khartoum, on May 22, 2011, one day after the diplomat's arrival in Sudan as part of an UN Security Council delegation which began a tour of three African states to assess peace and security threats, with a special focus on Sudan's contested border region of Abyei. The United Nations has called for an 'immediate cessation of hostilities' in Abyei as the south's army accused the north of bombing raids.
