Most people (at least in the West) assumed after the peaceful and largely successful referendum vote for South Sudan to become an independent nation, that the problems were solved. Going largely unnoticed in the Western news outlets, Sudan is still very much on brink. (Hat tip: Al Jazeera English.)
Border towns in particularly are very much at play, and the President of (Northern) Sudan has announced that he won't recognize the independence of South Sudan if the town of Abyei did not remain in the North. If this isn't ironed out soon, the whole region could go back down the road to war.
Please Pray for Sudan.
