Sudan soldiers begun blackmailing S. Africa shortly after Omar Al-Bashir left his country for the African Union summit in Johannesburg where he arrived on Saturday night. Fully Armed Sudanese forces surrounded military bases were South African soldiers live and the commander positioned them on combat preparation.
