The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said today that “at least 73,000 people were initially displaced throughout central and eastern localities of the Southern Kordofan state as a result of fighting.” Southern Sudan will become an independent state on July 9, and fighting has escalated along the ill-defined border as both northern and southern Sudan have yet to work out how to manage the oil industry or divide debt.
