Sudan south sudan hostilities 2012 4 2

An image grab taken from footage obtained by AFP shows Sudanese troops celebrating next to a burned military vehicle on March 29, 2012, one day after recapturing Sudan's southern oil center of Heglig following fighting with South Sudanese forces along the border. Southern troops had taken the Heglig oil field, parts of which are claimed by both countries, but Sudanese forces later retook the field. Both sides vowed to step back from the brink of all out war after three days of border violence including air strikes and tank battles.
