The tension in the world's youngest country continues to increase. South Sudan officials say Sudan forces from the north have bombed a major oil field claimed by both countries. The picture above is of the Unity Oil Field.

Tensions between the two countries are near a breaking point, Sudan says a summit planned between the Presidents of Sudan and South Sudan has been canceled due to the new violence. Oil rich South Sudan broke apart from Sudan last year after a bitter civil war.
