South Sudanese pay respect to their new flag

South Sudan has become the newest country in the world following an independence ceremony in the capital Juba.

South Sudan is splitting from its northern neighbour, the Republic of Sudan following decades of conflict between the north and south of the country.

The ceremony on Saturday was the culmination of a process which began with a peace deal signed in 2005.
