Sudanese journalists face death over article
Friday 28 January 2011
Sudan has charged two journalists with trying to overthrow the government, a crime punishable by death, for publishing an article saying the impoverished east of Africa's largest country may secede.
Sudan's oil-producing south voted this month in a referendum on secession from the north, promised under a 2005 peace accord which ended decades of civil war. It looks set to become independent on 9 July.
Many in the north blame the split on Khartoum's failure to share power and wealth with marginalised areas.
