IOM yesterday (3/5) received confirmation from the Government of Sudan that it will facilitate an IOM airlift from Khartoum to Juba of 12–15,000 South Sudanese currently stranded in Kosti, 200 kms south of the capital. The South Sudanese, many of whom have been in Kosti for months waiting for transport to South Sudan, will travel by bus to Khartoum and then board IOM charter flights to Juba, the South Sudan capital. IOM is currently  developing an operational plan to start the movements as soon as possible.
