UN council to N. Sudan Khartoum gov't: Withdraw from Abyei

UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council called on the Khartoum government on Friday to withdraw its forces immediately from the Abyei region, a key area of dispute in the north-south division of Sudan next month.
There has been no agreement on which country the oil-producing region should belong to when south Sudan becomes independent on July 9, but the northern military seized it on May 21, sparking fears of a renewed civil war.
