Some 15,000 Lou Nuer tribespeople have fled to western Ethiopia from South Sudan in recent weeks to escape clashes with a rival tribe and for fear of reprisal attacks. In Ethiopia, the new arrivals are settling around the border town of Matar in the Gambella region, some 500 kilometres west of Addis Ababa. UNHCR is helping the Ethiopian authorities to set up a reception centre near Matar, where the new arrivals are being screened by the Ethiopian refugee agency (ARRA) before they are relocated to Fugnido refugee camp, some 110 kms from Gambella.
