Talody town in the state of South Kordofan in Sudan is in the middle of a war zone.

The rebels of the Sudan Peoples Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) have been fighting there against the Khartoum
government since May last year.

However, while fighting continues, the government there is pressing ahead with a programme to rebuild the town, renovating and expanding the airport and building a new marketplace as well as a dam.
