"The streets of South Sudan's capital Juba were filled with people dancing with joy over the official announcement today that the proposed-nation's independence referendum has passed with more than 98 percent of southerners voting to secede. In Khartoum, Sudan President Omar Al-Bashir and South Sudan President Salva Kiir were together as the official results were announced. Earlier Bashir repeated that the Khartoum government will accept and support the results." (02/07/11)
