Abyei residents flee takeover

South Sudan leader calls on northern forces to withdraw so that people can return home.


    Salva Kiir, the leader of the South Sudanese government, says he has no intention of going to war with the North after the recent takeover of Abyei.

    But he did call on northern forces to withdraw from the region so that tens of thousands of people who were forced to flee could return home.
