Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir arrived in South Sudan Tuesday, as pressure mounts over the contested flashpoint enclave of Abyei and other issues left unresolved since the countries split two years ago. Bashir, an indicted war crimes suspect wanted by the International Criminal Court, is due to meet with his southern counterpart Salva Kiir. An AFP reporter said he was welcomed by a military guard of honour, former rebel fighters he once battled during the two-decade civil war that led to South Sudan's independence.
