"Renewed fighting in Sudan's most contested border region and in a strategic oil-rich state has left at least 20 people dead, and a top official said Wednesday he feared more attacks in the weeks leading up to Southern Sudan's independence in July. Deng Arop Kuol, the chief administrator in the disputed border region of Abyei, said a northern Sudanese army convoy was stopped at a police checkpoint on Sunday while attempting to move south through the area without permission from his government."
