At least 23 people have died in clashes with Arab nomads in the Abyei region, close to Sudan's north-south border, Reuters reported. Analysts had cited Abyei as the most likely place for north-south conflicts to turn violent during and after the referendum vote on southern Sudan's secession from the North.

Chief members of the Abyei's Dinka Ngok tribe, linked to the south, had accused Khartoum of arming the area's Arab Misseriya militants in clashes on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and claimed that they were expecting continued attacks in the coming days.

Sudanese began voting Sunday on an independence referendum likely to create the world's newest nation.
