KHARTOUM/JUBA - Sudan and South Sudan have agreed to resume direct flights between their capital cities nearly five months after they were halted during a dispute over the status of South Sudanese living in the north, both sides said on Sunday.

The two countries have been at loggerheads over a variety of issues since South Sudan split away from Sudan a year ago under a 2005 peace deal that ended decades of civil war.

Hundreds of thousands of southerners still live in Sudan, where many have faced an uncertain legal status since an April deadline passed for them to get work and residency documents or be treated like foreigners.
