Sudans are 'locked in logic of war', UN told

Sudan and South Sudan are "locked in a logic of war", the UN Security Council (UNSC) has been told.

The two countries are fighting over their disputed border, with Sudan trying to remove South Sudan forces from its Heglig oil-field.

African Union mediator Thabo Mbeki and UN envoy Haile Menkarios gave the warning to a closed-door UNSC meeting.

David Patale reports.
