War FaUs to Unite the Sudan KHARTOUM, Sudan (XP) -After 10 years of civil war, government leaders seem almost convinced the African revolt in the south of the ^ country cannot be resolved by 'military action. Government s o u r c e s ac knowledge privately that they favor the principle of a round table conference so antagonis lie political groups which claim to represent the south ern provinces can negotiate i ·settlement with the centra government.

One southerner said: "The army controls the towns and roads, thr An- yanyas the forests -- and nobody controls the Anyanyas." The rebels take their name from a p o i s o n o u s jungle insect.
