South Sudan referendum

epa02521167 Southern Sudanese men wait in line to vote for the referendum on the independence of South Sudan at a polling station in Juba, Southern Sudan, 09 January 2011. Southern Sudanese went to the polls in a historic referendum that is widely expected to see them vote to split from the north. The week-long vote is the centerpiece of a 2005 peace deal that ended decades of civil war between the mainly Muslim north and the Christian and Animist south - a conflict which claimed the lives of more than 2 million southerners and displaced 4 million more. An emotional Salva Kiir, president of Southern Sudan, choked back tears as he cast his ballot and dedicated the vote to independence leader John Garang - who died in a 2005 helicopter crash - and all those who perished in the war. Just under 4 million Southern Sudanese are registered to put a thumbprint on the ballot - either under a picture of two hands clasping for unity, or one held up as if waving goodbye for secession. Few doubt that jubilant and expectant Southern Sudanese will vote for independence, but at least 60 per cent of registered voters must turn out for the referendum to be valid. The vote, which many had doubted would take place on time, has raised fears of a return to conflict between north and south. EPA/MOHAMED MESSARA
