Thousands of Sudanese need food, water and shelter, a source in an aid organisation said on Tuesday, after they fled a widening rebel offensive that swept through a previously peaceful area.
The source in Sudan's Humanitarian Aid Commission (HAC) told AFP that several thousand from one district alone, Abu Kershola, had converged on the North Kordofan town of El Rahad.
"They are in a miserable situation," said the source, asking for anonymity.
He said a team from HAC is in the area to assess people's needs.
