29 Jun 2012 description

(New York, 28 June 2012) I am deeply concerned by the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Sudan, especially in South Kordofan and Blue Nile States. Hundreds of thousands of people remain trapped in the conflict zone with little access to food, water, shelter and medical services. Thousands more are crossing into neighbouring countries each day, fleeing the fighting and in search of food and other basic supplies. Since April, the number of refugees from Sudan arriving in South Sudan and Ethiopia has more than doubled, to 200,000.
