Sudan, South Sudan move closer to war: South Sudanese leader Salva Kiir (shown above), in China to meet with President Hu Jintao, said Tuesday that his country’s “neighbour in Khartoum has declared war on the Republic of South Sudan.” This follows a comment by Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir last week that suggested they would crush the “insect” government to the south.
