Mixed feelings in north Sudan

President asserts support for south's independence, while opposition voices fears over separation.

     

    Omar al-Bashir, Sudan's president, recently sent a strong message asserting the south's legitimate right to hold its self-determination referendum on January 9, and ensuring security for both sides in case unrest erupts over the vote.

    But main opposition parties in Khartoum, the capital, have expressed fears over a separation, warning it will not bring any good for either region.
