    AFRICANGLOBE – The Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir said today he ordered oil minister Awad al-Jaz to block the pipeline carrying South Sudan’s crude all the way to Red Sea coastal city of Port Sudan.
    Bashir said this was in response to Juba’s continued support to the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) rebels fighting Khartoum on multiple fronts.
    “O’ Awad [oil minister] tomorrow direct oil companies to close the pipeline and after that let them [South Sudan] take it via Kenya or Djibouti or wherever they want to take it” the Sudanese president said at a rally at the inauguration of an electricity plant in Shil’ab area.
