Background: Life is getting back to normal for the million negro refugees in south Sudan who have just returned home after sixteen years of civil strife -- but there is new trouble in the north.
President Jaafar El Nimeiry finally managed to arrange last year's peace between the Moslem north and the southern negro minority. He gave regional self government to the sough and the peace also brought the region money. United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Sadruddin Aga Kahn, who coordinated all emergency relief for the south, has donated 21 million dollars (GBP .4 million sterling) worth of food, medical supplies and equipment to aid resettlement.
There has been rioting against the government in khartoum, the northern capital, and a student and policeman were killed last week. The University of Khartoum has been closed and a two week national state of emergency has been declared.
If President Nimeiry falls there could wall be a final split between the north and south because southern leaders would probably never accept a northern right-wing government.
