Sudan Clashes Leave 46 Dead

From Reuters

Northern and southern Sudanese clashed here Tuesday in a second day of violence sparked by the death of former rebel leader John Garang, who helped end two decades of war in Africa’s largest country.

Authorities sent in police to quell the clashes, which they said had killed 46 people.

Garang, leader of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement, a southern former rebel group, died in a weekend helicopter crash. Officials said there were no indications of foul play, as some of Garang’s followers have alleged.
