South Sudan militia group unites with SPLA

Sudan Man blogs news Jan 9 of South Sudan militia group uniting with SPLA and says it is "a big story for securing the peace in Southern Sudan as the SSDF has a strong base in the oil rich Upper Nile region of the South."

Strategy Page Jan 10 says "the SSDF (South Sudan Defense Force), one of the major rebel movements in the south, had formally disbanded and many of its members have joined the SPLA (Sudan People's Liberation Army), the main rebel organization that has negotiated a peace deal with the government. The SPLA is now calling itself the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM), a political, not military, organization."
