Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby Sunday declared Sudan the 39th province of the worldwide Anglican Communion, six years after the predominantly Christian south gained independence from the north.The Anglican church in Sudan, a majority Muslim country, has been administered from South Sudan since the 2011 split which followed a civil war that left more than two million people dead. Welby said that creating a 39th Anglican province with its own Khartoum-based archbishop was a "new beginning" for Christians in Sudan.The idea of a separate Anglican province in Sudan was first discussed in 2009 as it became clear that the south would secede.Experts say that between three and five percent of Sudan's about 25 million population are Christian.
