22,000 South Sudanese Stranded in Khartoum

From Refugees International:

Khartoum/Washington, DC – As the final results of South Sudan’s referendum for independence are confirmed, 22,000 southerners are stranded on the side of the road in and around Khartoum still waiting for transportation to the South. On the eve of this historic moment, RI staff members inside Sudan have met with people camped out in the open air for weeks. After Sudan splits, they are afraid they will become refugees in a foreign land and that their rights will not be protected. Refugees International (RI) reiterates its call for the governments of north and south Sudan to formalize an agreement to ensure that southerners in the north and northerners in the south are protected and not stripped of their nationality.
