S Sudan border region on edge

Despite intensified patrolling, the potential for violence erupting again in Upper Nile state remains high.

    Any hopes of a peaceful resolution to the problems of Upper Nile, a war-torn region on the border with north, have been dashed after a ceasefire accord signed between a rebel leader, George Athor, and the Southern Sudanese army crumbled.

    Some groups have surrendered to the army but others like Athor refuse.
