South Sudan opposition approves peace deal with government

South Sudan's opposition force has accepted a peace deal with the Government that is expected to be formally signed at the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) summit.

Opposition leader Riek Machar and President Salva Kiir have held weeks of talks in Khartoum in search of a comprehensive peace deal to end a conflict which has killed tens of thousands and displaced millions since 2013. The warring parties have already signed several agreements, including a permanent ceasefire and a power-sharing deal that would have Machar returning as first vice president.
