JUBA, Sudan - The African Union says Sudan's north and south have agreed to establish a jointly patrolled demilitarized border zone as Southern Sudan prepares to declare independence in July.
The demilitarized zone will stretch across the 1,300 mile (2,100 kilometer) north-south border. The zone will stretch 6 miles (10 kilometers) north and south from the 1956 border, the tentative line drawn when Sudan became independent from Britain.
North and south Sudan fought a more than two-decade civil war that killed 2 million people.
