Faint hopes over abducted Sudan refugees

New facilities for  South Sudan refugeesFrom RAJI BASHIR in Khartoum, Sudan
KHARTOUM, (CAJ News) – HUMANITARIAN organisations are working round the clock to ascertain the whereabouts of 32 children and women armed groups
have kidnapped in South Sudan.
It is feared they might have been killed, following the recent abduction and subsequent killing of other refugees near the refugee hosting area of
Lasu Payam.
The fatal shooting and machete attack by armed groups killed two and wounded five refugees from the Kordofan region.
Meanwhile, four women and 28 children are still in captivity in an unknown location following their abduction in a refugee centre late October.
Captors entered the settlement and asked refugees to present their food ration cards for food distribution mobilization, allegedly on behalf of
the United Nations (UN).
A United Nations spokesperson said they were exerting efforts to obtain details about their whereabouts and their captors.
Prior to the raids, Lasu hosted over 10 000 refugees. The camp is now empty.
