SUDAN: WAR AND INDEPENDENCE

A WORLD EXCLUSIVE MADE BY OUTSIDER TELEVISION FOR AL JAZEERA
 

As Southern Sudan prepared for its historic independence day last weekend fim-makers Callum Macrae and John D McHugh travelled into the Nuba Mountains in the disputed border state of Southern Kordofan, where rebels are fighting the forces of the Khartoum government - and civilians are suffering daily bombing by government planes.

And in a world exclusive they travel to a secret location deep in the Nuba mountains to meet SPLA commander, Abdel Aziz Al Hilu, to conduct the first interview with the rebel leader since the war broke out over a month ago - in which he calls for the creation of a united front to bring down the government of Omar Al Bashir.

They also interview Eyptian UN 'peacekeepers', trapped and immobilised in their base in the SPLA-held town of Kuada - unable to leave and accused of collaboration with Khartoum's forces.
