Blue Nile state

A makeshift clinic in Blue Nile state reported 30 abortions carried out in one week, due to the trauma suffered by women traveling long distances on foot to escape recent air strikes.

A medical assistant said 200 children had also turned up at the clinic suffering from malnutrition and diarrhea, but this was difficult to control with a lack of medicines and proper health service.

The recent bombing in Blue Nile has also caused 20,000 people to flee towards Doro refugee camp in Upper Nile state, South Sudan in search of food and shelter, a source has said.

However Saad Allah the Commissioner of the western sector in Blue Nile, said there were actually 50,000 refugee sleeping under trees, after three weeks of hunger.

He said more people are fleeing but becoming stuck in forest areas eight kilometers from Upper Nile, whilst waiting for buses to carry them across to the camps.
