Media reports on 09 June 2013 state Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir ordered a halt to the flow of oil from South Sudan, in response to its alleged support for rebels hostile to his government. The move to halt the flow of oil is seen as a setback for the two countries, which reached the brink of war after a dispute over oil transit fees a little over a year ago. EPA/PHILIP DHIL
