Sudan split frightens traders

Southern Sudanese traders who depend on the North for goods are worried about the impact of a split.

    Bentiu is a southern Sudanese town closely bordering the north. Many of its traders depend on the north for goods and livelihoods.

    With the increasing probability of a divided Sudan, many of these traders are concerned about what the future may hold for them.
