300 seek shelter with UN in Sudan after 3 killed

From The Associated Press, February 14, 2011:

Officials in Sudan say 300 civilians are seeking refuge at a U.N. compound in the contested Sudanese town of Abyei following a spate of violence over the weekend that killed three people from north Sudan.

The officials said Monday the 300 have been inside the U.N. compound since Saturday, when violence broke out between security officials and a youth mob later killed three northerners.

Most of those seeking shelter are Misseriya tribesmen from Sudan’s north and Darfuris from Sudan’s west. Other residents of Abyei are from a black African group.
