For a lucky few in the besieged, refugee-jammed Sudanese city of Juba, $350 can buy space on a packed cargo plane to Khartoum. For others, there is virtually no escape. Refugees said that the Sudanese army is preventing thousands of frightened civilians from fleeing to rebel-held territory outside the town to escape shellfire, food shortages and the threat of rebel attack.

The once-prosperous city was a symbol of an unending conflict: cargo planes bringing in scant relief, shells crashing down from rebel artillery, hundreds of thousands of refugees streaming into a city redolent of death. Today, Juba is no longer a symbol of the war. It's an oasis.
