25 december 2010 - Juba, South Sudan - South Sudan's President Salva Kiir Mayardit attends the Christmas mass at Kator Cathedral in Juba. He wished the people of South Sudan "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" and said that he did not expect to reach an agreement with the North on post-referendum issues. 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
