Sudan orders South Sudan oil pipeline closed
Sudan’s official news agency says the country’s president has ordered the shutting of pipelines for oil exports to South Sudan. The Sudan news agency SUNA quoted President Omar al-Bashir as telling a public rally in the capital Khartoum on Saturday that the move was in response to South Sudan’s funding of rebels fighting his regime.
The Sudan news agency quoted al-Bashir as saying the “decision follows careful study of all consequences and repercussions.”
