"Independence Road: South Sudan    Africa's longest-running civil war came to an end in 2005 with the signing of Sudan's Comprehensive Peace Agreement, which included as a clause, a referendum of independence for southern Sudan. Six years later, citizens of the South voted almost unanimously in favour of secession.    With secession announced, some questioned whether Khartoum would accept it. But on 09/06/2011, South Sudan became the world's newest nation."

In January southern Sudanese voted in a referendum for secession from Khartoum. On July their wish was granted, drawing a line under years of civil war.
