UN: 40,000 may have fled clashes in Sudan's Kadugli

GENEVA - As many as 40,000 people may have fled fighting in Sudan's Southern Kordofan state, the United Nations said Friday, after nearly a week of clashes between northern forces and southern-aligned groups.
The clashes broke out in the volatile border state's capital of Kadugli after a police station was attacked on Saturday. Officials from the northern and southern ruling parties have traded blame for who started the fighting.
