Displaced Sudanese Return, says IOM

IOM says that just over half of about four million people who fled the civil war in South Sudan have returned there after the 2005 peace agreement

The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) says that just over half of about four million people who fled the civil war in South Sudan have returned there after the 2005 peace agreement.

IOM spokesperson, Jean Philippe Chauzy, states that the pace of return slowed significantly after more than 1.47 million went home during the first two years, with just 160 000 going back in 2009.

About two million people died in the 22-year war between south Sudanese rebels and the government in Khartoum, according to the United Nations, in a conflict fuelled by religion, ethnicity, ideology, resources and oil.
