North Sudan arming border region

As the south votes on its future, the north is reportedly sending arms to the border.

    In Sudan voting has continued for a fourth day in the week-long referendum. Officials in the south say the voter turnout has already reached more than 60 per cent.

    That is the number needed to validate the results of a vote that could split the country in two.

    There have been reports of troop build-up along the north-south border.

    Nick Clark travelled to the sensitive South Kordofan to investigate.
