The emergence of a new country.
In the shadow of the events in Egypt, the Wiki Leaks trials, university fees and police protests, we have in our world a new country. Born out of civil war.
Nearly 99% of voters were in favor of the split.
After 6 years of civil war the people of Sudan have what they wanted. Over 3million people voted for the split.
They are due to declare formal separation on the 9th July.
