ARAB-AFRICAN AFFAIRS - July 31 - 2,500 Eritrean Refugees Go Home From Sudan.

UN officials say another 2,500 Eritrean refugees have left Sudan, bringing the total number of Eritreans who have returned to 9,500. (The voluntary repatriation of Eritrean refugees who fled fighting between Eritrea and Ethiopia began on July 25 when around 600 returned to Eritrea.) The 2,500 refugees left from Shagreb and Al Lafa camps in Kassala state in eastern Sudan. (Sudan already had 160,000 Eritrean refugees when 90,000 entered the country during the recent fighting, which halted in June with an Organisation of African Unity [OAU] peace plan.)
