Mile 14 is a disputed area of grazing land located between Northern Bahr El-Ghazal State in South Sudan and East Darfur State in Sudan. It is an area of 23 Kilometers south of a river known as the Bahr Al-Arab in Sudan and the Kiir River in South Sudan.
Khartoum claims Mile 14 is Sudanese land and figures in the maps of Sudan since 1924 as part of the Darfur region.
In his 2010 book When boundaries become borders British historian Douglas H. Johnson wrote :
"When a dispute over grazing arose in 1918, the British governor of Darfur imposed a new boundary, declaring that ’Dar Rizeigat’ extended 65 km (40 miles) south of the Bahr al-Arab/Kiir River."
