We realize that often the news are not very reassuring, but undoubtedly the riots and incidents began on 15 December which concern South Sudan, have nothing to do with the Sudan. They are now two distinct states.
The distances in Sudan, the largest country in Africa, are remarkable and two thousand kilometers separate P. Sudan from the border with South Sudan, the new state.

Southern Sudan is the youngest state in the world.
The process that led to independence was long and complicated, and it was concluded, after a referendum, in January 2011.
During this referendum, 99.57 % of the population voted in favor of secession and on 9 July 2011 has been declared independence.
In July 2012, South Sudan has signed the Geneva Conventions.
