KHARTOUM - Sudan's army will withdraw all troops from the disputed region of Abyei bordering South Sudan, its army spokesman said on Monday, complying with a demand by the UN Security Council.

"Sudan's army has decided to redeploy the troops to areas outside Abyei," army spokesman al-Sawarmi Khalid told reporters.

Sudan seized Abyei in May 2011, prompting tens of thousands of civilians to flee, after an attack on a military convoy blamed by the United Nations on the southern army.
