JUBA, Sudan - More than 80 people have been killed in clashes between rebels, civilians and police in southern Sudan in the latest violence in the oil-producing region that will become independent in July, the army said on Tuesday.

Southerners overwhelmingly voted to secede in a January referendum, promised in a 2005 peace deal that ended decades of civil war with the north fought over religion, ethnicity, ideology and oil.

Analysts warn that the underdeveloped south, roughly the size of France, could become a failed state and destabilize the whole region if security deteriorates further.
