South Sudan becomes free nation now!

Posted on: 09/Jul/2011 2:17:29 AM
South Sudan became the world`s newest nation early Saturday, officially breaking away from Sudan after two civil wars over five decades that cost the lives of at least 2 million people. 

Residents of the new nation - the Republic of South Sudan - danced in the streets, banged on jerry cans and chanted the name of the world`s newest president, Salva Kiir. 

South Sudan earned independence at 12.01 am on Saturday, the culmination of a January independence vote guaranteed in a 2005 peace deal that ended the most recent north-south war. 

Saturday`s early morning celebrations were joyous for the freedom gained but tinged with the memories of family members lost.
