South Sudan's big challenge

Creating jobs for a better future will be a major task for officials of what will soon be the world's newest nation.

    Southern Sudan will become the world's newest country on July 9, and with it comes the daunting task of state building.

    Much of the south was destroyed during the civil war, so officials are having to start from scratch.

    As Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from Juba, creating jobs is one of the many challenges faced by south Sudan.
