Sudan: March 19, 2002


The Sudanese government (Khartoum) said it is moving forces to the Sudan-Eritrean border. SPLA rebels and allies are reported massing in the area (near Garoura). How large is the mobilization? Thats unclear, but a subsequent report said local militia units were ordered to report for training. The degree of SPLA involvement is also uncertain. The Beja ethnic group (many are nomads) who live in the region have fought against the Sudanese government in the past. The SPLA did claim that its northern forces had attacked the town of Kassala in November 2000.
