South Sudan: Civilians in Abyei and southern Kordofan need protection

Dhieu Williams says Civilians in Abyei and Southern Kordofan need protection: “The allegations of ethnic cleansing in Abyei and Southern Kordofan suggests a no fly zone, similar to the one that has been implemented in Libya, is needed to protect civilians. A solution to the fighting in these contested areas would be to allow all forces to fully withdraw from Abyei and southern Kordofan, and create a demilitarized zone.”
