External Situation Report on the Population Movements in Sudan (07-13 September 2014)

Introduction:

During this reporting period (7 September - 13 September), IOM tracked 245 South Sudanese arriving from White Nile to Jabal Awlia, amounting to a daily average of 35 persons per day. All arrivals during this reporting period were tracked by the IOM hub in Jabal Awlia; no South Sudanese were registered in South or West Kordofan. Therefore, the number of South Sudanese entering Khartoum continues to drop. During the previous reporting period (31 August - 6 September), IOM tracked slightly more people, totalling 263 persons, or 38 persons per day.

The number of South Sudanese fleeing tensions in Moyo district on the Ugandan side of the border has risen from 170 to 2,000

Report
Miraya FM

Kajo-Keji County Commissioner Henry Kala says more people crossed the border after fresh violence broke out last night.

Kala: “The situation again has worsened; these people are burning houses as I speak. Seventeen houses are burnt and one church and our population coming now from Jalle and also Litoba has gone to 2,000 and they are still coming. They are settled near a primary school in Jalle. You find these people are going back, collecting their luggage. It is really a misery to see small children running.”
