Sudan's Jerusalem: Abyei { 32 images } Created 21 Jan 2011

On a daily basis Abyei alternates between an idyllic peace and all out war. A woman buys lumber to build a new house, and across town a young man takes to the bush with his father's gun to brace for more attacks. Leaders of the North and south send the representatives for talks, even as they militarize the area. Hoping for peace and preparing for war Abyei stumbles towards an agreement that can address the root causes of this politicized conflict, and end the war.
