Sudan Announces Prophet's Birthday Public Holiday

The Secretariat General of the Sudanese Council of Ministers has announced that next Tuesday, February 15, 2011, would be the date of the upcoming Al-mawlid public holiday (the birthday of Prophet Mohamed).

Based on the recent approval by referendum of the secession of South Sudan from Sudan (2011-01-08), it is safe to assume that this public holiday will not be observed in South Sudan.
