Abyei leaders call for calm

Leaders from Sudan’s disputed region of Abyei are calling for calm amidst clashes in the area. The oil-rich Abyei region was supposed to hold a concurrent referendum this week to decide whether to join the south or remain part of northern Sudan but that exercise was postponed, creating uncertainty about the future of the region occupied by the Ngok Dinka tribe, who are allied to southern tribes. There have been clashes between the Arab Messiriya tribesmen and the Ngok Dinka over grazing rights in the area.

Former minister and current head of the Abyei Referendum Forum, Deng Mading, says he remains hopeful that the region will rejoin the south.
