South Sudan gets ready for independence

Increasing instability and tensions with the north could dampen the celebratory mood.



    On July 9, South Sudan will gain independence and become the world's newest nation.

    Increasing instability in the region and tensions between north and south Sudan could dampen the celebratory mood.

    Rebel groups are destabilising parts of the south and skirmishes in south Khordofan have displaced thousands of people.
