Sudan is the biggest country in Africa. There are two Nile rivers in Sudan – the Blue Nile and the White Nile; both meet in the capital Khartoum and form the Nile as we know it. The river then flows to Egypt and other countries.
The northern part of the country is virtually a desert with very little rain fall and most of the people there still lead nomadic lives. The southern part is lush with rain forests. Islam is the most popular religion in Sudan, 60% of the people adhere to it. But still 25% of the people are animist, which means they are still believe in souls or they still live according to their traditional typical African ways.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest-warrant against the current president of Sudan, Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir. He is accused of genocide, acts against humanity and other charges. This means, he would be arrested immediately if he left his country for a country which ratifies the judgments of the ICC.
