Bishops of Sudan, South Sudan postpone meeting as tensions mount
Catholic World News - May 09, 2012
The bishops of Sudan and South Sudan have indefinitely postponed a meeting of their episcopal conference because of the rising tensions between the two countries.
Although South Sudan has won its independence, the bishops of that country remain members of the Sudanese episcopal conference. Cardinal Zubeir Wako of Khartoum announced that the June meeting of that conference would not take place, and the scheduling of a future meeting would be postponed as the bishops await developments in the region.
