SPLM soldiers guard the room where Sudan's First Vice-President and former rebel leader of Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) John Garang's body lies in New Site village in Southern Sudan August 1, 2005. Officials of the former rebel SPLM began meeting on Monday to decide the future of the group after its leader Garang died in a helicopter crash. Garang, a key figure in a January peace deal hailed as a rare success story for Africa, died over the weekend after the Ugandan presidential helicopter he was travelling in went down in bad weather.
