FN melder nå om nesten 100 000 bekrefta på flukt fra Abyei. I forkant snakka man om noe sånt som at det bodde 110 000 i Abyei… Og dette er ikke tall, men mennesker.
«On the first day of the attack [on 21 May] I was at home. I heard the planes and then the bombs. I ran to my mother. She was dead. My little brother was next to her. He was dead too.
«Then I left on foot with my brothers and sisters. The youngest is five years old. We walked for three days. We took nothing with us. When we got here [Mayem Abum], by chance I found my uncle and his wife and their baby daughter. Since then, we have lived under a tree.»
