Prelude to south Sudan referendum

Voters in southern Sudan cast votes in poll that may be a prelude to referendum on independence.

    Despite the boycott of numerous opposition groups, Sudan's elections are seen to be significant, marking the country's move from a military government to a democratic one.
     

    The polls are also being held as part of a peace deal that ended the civil war between the north and south of the country.

    And for many people in south Sudan, they are being viewed as a prelude to a referendum in January on possible independence.
