Sudanese President Accuses Rebels Of Violating Cease Fire

South Sudan’s president and rebel leader accuse each other of violating a ceasefire brokered to end the 21-month conflict in the country.
Sudanese Salva Kiir president said the armed opposition violated the ceasefire. He was addressing a high-level meeting on South Sudan held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly via video conference. But rebel leader Riek Machar who attended the meeting complained that they were attacked and then blamed. The government forces and rebels each control parts of the country. This is not the first time they accuse each other of violating the truce that was signed last month. The United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon who chaired the meeting urged the two sides to respect the ceasefire.
