Sudanese border town struggles for normality

South Kordofan authorities press ahead with reconstruction programme for Talody in the midst of fighting.



    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.
