Report by Jonah Fisher, BBC News, Khartoum
) - excerpt:
The government of southern Sudan has launched an inquiry into what happened to $60m (£30.5m) it received in 2005.
A panel has been set up to trace the money President Omar al-Bashir said was given to former southern rebel group, the Sudan People's Liberation Movement.
Mr Bashir is accused of backing militias that still operate in the south.
As I recall, some news reports a few years ago suggested John Garang consciously spent much money on modernising his army, money intended for development.
