MSF (Medecins sans Frontieres) : Southern Sudan: MSF worried about the security situation in Equatoria

Last Tuesday, November 15th, the Yambio region, in Western Equatoria, which has been thought of as one of the most stable areas in the country, was the scene of interethnic clashes between Dinka and Zande groups. During the fighting, a UN compound was looted and burnt and its occupants had to be evacuated urgently.

The number of dead and wounded is still not known but the tension also reached the counties of Tanbura and Ezo in the north of the region, where MSF is working. Because of this growing threat of violence, MSF evacuated its international staff.

The organisation has not yet been able to contact its national staff in Tanbura. MSF teams are trying to gather information on the incidents.

It is really Sad to see so many people die in front of our Eyes and we do Nothing. Reminds me of Yugoslav Civil War and how Europe was standing by and watching for years how people were killing each other. But the problem with Balkan is that it still IS a part of Europe and the rest of the West can not affor such wars being raged on the frontiers of the so-called "Civilzed West". But Africa is another story. Nobody wants to set their Foot there. Nobody Really wants to Help these people. But I KNOW, that if Darfur had Oil like Kuwait does, there would be 150.000 Western Soldiers standing there, along with 1500 tanks and strong Air Support, taking care of the Problem.
