JUBA, SUDAN - JANUARY 08: Fearing violence in the north of the country following Sunday`s referendum vote, hundreds of southern Sudanese diembark a barge that recently returned from the north with hundreds of others January 8, 2011 in Juba, Sudan. Southern Sudan is preparing for an independence referendum to take place this Sunday following a historic 2005 peace treaty that brought an end to decades of civil war between the Arab north and predominantly Christian and animist south. The south is expected to vote around 99 percent to secede from the north which will also give it a majority of Sudan's oil resulting in splitting Africa's largest country in two. Over two million people were killed in the north-south civil war which began in the 1950`s. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images) less
