Bishop warns of new bloodshed in southern Sudan

June 20, 2011

As southern Sudan prepares for independence, Bishop Macram Max Gassis of El Obeid warns that new fighting is likely on the border that will separate the north from the newly autonomous south.

“After Darfur there is now a new impending genocide in Sudan,” the bishop says. Fighting has already begun in the South Kordofan province, on the new border, with the Khartoum government launching air attacks on the civilian population there.
