Abyei residents vote on Sudan-South Sudan choice

Voters wait in line to cast their vote, as others have their fingers dipped in ink to show they have done so, in an abandoned school used as a polling center in the disputed border region of Abyei, whose ownership is claimed by both Sudan and South Sudan, Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013. Hundreds of people in the disputed border region of Abyei voted Sunday in a referendum that they hope will decide whether they join Sudan or South Sudan, a local leader said, but the exercise lacked the official backing of either of the two governments.
