Muslims Burn Down Catholic Church in S. Sudan; War May Occur Soon between Sudan and S. Sudan

The Christian Post website reports today (April 23, 2012) that hundreds of Muslims incinerated a Catholic Church complex in Khartoum -- the capital of South Sudan -- amid growing hostilities between the Arab-dominated Muslim government of Sudan and the newly independent, predominantly Christian nation of South Sudan.

Fire fighters could not put out the fire, according to witnesses.

South Sudan seceded from the predominantly Sunni Muslim north in 2011, after decades of civil war.

It is feared that Sudan and South Sudan might witness a full-scale war in the near future over some unresolved issues, including sharing of natural resources and demarcation of borders.
