South Sudan rebel army surrenders

Around 3,000 fighters from one of South Sudan’s biggest rebel groups, the South Sudan Liberation Army, have handed in their weapons, a local official told Reuters.

The former rebels crossed the border from Sudan to the north in about 100 trucks. Sudan has repeatedly denied accusations that it backs rebel groups in the South.

The South Sudanese information minister told the BBC that the rebels had been pardoned by President Salva Kiir, and would now be integrated into South Sudan's army.

South Sudan seceded from Sudan in 2011, and took most of the country’s oil, although all its pipelines run north into Sudan.

 

Relations between the two countries have improved recently, which has led to a resumption in oil production in South Sudan.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
