25 december 2010 - Juba, South Sudan - Southern Sudanese women pray during the Christmas mass at Kator Cathedral in Juba. Archbishop Paulino Lukudu Loro, who presided over the sermon called on eligible southern voters to opt for separation when they go to the polls on January 9th 2011. A referendum for southern independence will be held on January 9 and probably lead to the partition of this nation, the largest on the African continent. Photo credit: Benedicte Desrus
