South Sudan 2014 Religious Freedom Report

The State Department has released the South Sudan 2014 International Religious Freedom Report.  South Sudan is nominally majority Christian although there are significant numbers of persons who follow indigenous religious beliefs.  There is also a minority Muslim population, although there are no reliable estimates on the percentage. 

Christian and Muslim leaders regularly consult with each other.  The government demolished a mosque built on government property by northern Muslims during the war for independence and discussed compensation with Muslim leaders for this and two other mosques demolished in previous years.
