South Sudan: Abyei refugees' hopes of returning home
It is just over a month since South Sudan's independence, but the dispute over the border region of Abyei has not been solved.
Abyei is claimed by both cattle-herding Arab Misseriya nomads from Sudan and a pro-South Sudan ethnic group, the Dinka Ngok.
Last May, following an attack on their troops, the Sudanese armed forces took control of their town. Some UN peacekeepers from Ethiopia have been allowed in, but Sudan still occupies the town.
In the violence more than 100,000 Dinka Ngok fled. For BBC Network Africa, James Copnall went to meet some of them in the South Sudanese states of Warrup and Western Bahr al-Ghazal.
