Talks stall over Sudan's Abyei vote

The north and the souuth cannot agree on who should vote in upcoming referendum.

    Talks between leaders of north and south Sudan have stalled over an upcoming referendum in the oil-rich region of Abyei.

    As South Sudan holds a referendum on independence in January, Abyei will simultaneously vote on whether the region should belong to north or south Sudan.

    But the parties cannot agree on who will be eligible to vote, and the leader of the region warns it could return to conflict if the issues are not resolved.
