Presidents of Sudan and South Sudan met
The presidents of Sudan and South Sudan met in the Ethiopian capital on Saturday for the first time since the two countries went to battle over the Heglig oil field in April.
Their negotiators have made 'slow and uneven' progress in peace talks since the April crisis, said the African Union Commission in a report released the same day.

The two countries face the threat of sanctions from the United Nations Security Council unless they resolve differences over oil revenues and border demarcation by an August 2 deadline.
