The Ongoing Civil War in the Sudan
This 4 page report discusses the civil war between the Muslim-led government against non-Muslim black rebels since Sudan gained independence in 1956. The government controls little territory in the southern part of the state and regional boundaries are drawn according to ethnic and historical battle lines. The southerners of the Sudan are dark-skinned Africans who practice Christianity and traditional animist religions while the northerners are richer and more numerous, practice Islam, speak Arabic, and control the central government in Khartoum.
