  • Movements of UN humanitarian workers were limited in the Abyei area, following mounting tensions resulting in the death of a national staff member of the UN peacekeeping mission, UNISFA.

  • Flights of extremely vulnerable returnees from Khartoum to Aweil were suspended after a plane carrying 57 returnees crash landed in Aweil. Fortunately no serious injuries were sustained by the passengers.
