Securing south Sudan

Region's police struggle with limited resources ahead of important elections.

    A peace deal in 2005 ended the second Sudanese civil war and established southern Sudan as an autonomous region within the country.

    However, the region remains plagued with intra-tribal conflicts as it prepares for local and national presidential this year followed by a referendum on independence in 2011.

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel Hamid reports from Juba on attempts by the police to bring unity and security to the region, despite their limited resources.
