The sanctuary of western Sudan

Sudan Tribune --

March 31, 2016 (KHARTOUM) – Tens of thousands of South Sudanese from the greater Bhar el Ghazal region have continued to flee to the neighbouring Sudan due to combined threats of conflict and hunger, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) in Sudan, has reported Thursday. For the last two months, over 48,000 South Sudanese have arrived in East Darfur, South Darfur and West Kordofan states since late January 2016 and are in dire humanitarian situation in the neighbouring country.

Note: these are people fleeing into Darfur and Kordofan, which are normally seen as among the worst human rights crises in the world. That's how bad things are in South Sudan.
