Hello, South Sudan!

There is a new country, South Sudan, just recognized by the U.S.  Voice of America has the story on its independence here  Population, 8 million.  It will have ten states and a capital of Juba. It is the 54th country in Africa.

I’m not sure how this relates to the struggles over the people of Darfur, the subject of several independent films recently.

A story about President Obama’s recognition today of the country is on AFP here

ABC’s story is here
