Sudan: bishop appeals for peace in Blue Nile State
Catholic World News - October 04, 2011
Conflict between the Sudanese government in Khartoum and local rebels has displaced half of the population of the Blue Nile State, which borders the newly independent state of South Sudan.
“Reaching the displaced people is problematic because of the terrain and the difficulty of crossing the [Blue Nile] river,” said Auxiliary Bishop Daniel Adwok of Khartoum, who appeals for peace in the region and reported massive aerial bombardment. “The whole area is occupied by armed forces.”
