"Sudan vowed Wednesday to confiscate a portion of South Sudan's oil as it passes through a pipeline in Sudan as talks between the countries failed to produce any agreement on how to split oil revenues. Sudanese officials defended the action as a reasonable step to bolster their country's flailing economy, which lost access to oil production facilities earlier this year when South Sudan became independent."
