Africa: Abyei's Dinka vote to join South Sudan

Along the border between Sudan and South Sudan, the Ngok Dinka community in the disputed region of Abyei has declared allegiance to the south. Earlier in the week, they held an unofficial referendum to decide which of the two countries they want to join - and the result: 99.9 percent in favor of South Sudan. Al Jazeera's Peter Greste reports from Abyei.
