Did you know that a new country was created at 12.01am on Saturday 9th July, 2011?

After two civil wars spanning 50 years and the death of over 2 million people, the Republic of South Sudan has formed.

What were they fighting about? Ostensibly, religion. The north is primarily Arab and Muslim and the south is primarily Christian and animist.

Let’s hope that everyone gives peace a chance this time.
