Beshir `ready' to divide Sudan


Cairo - The Sudanese opposition coalition, National Democratic Alliance (NDA), said yesterday that President Omar al-Beshir was ready to divide the country to have an Islamic state in the north. "President Omar al-Beshir's statements that he would agree to a separation from southern Sudan show the true position of the National Islamic Front, which prefers the establishment of an Islamic republic to national unity," the NDA said.
