South Sudan's Kiir, Machar commit to forming unity govt

As pressure intensifies on South Sudan's leaders to implement a peace deal, president Salva Kiir and former rebel leader Riek Machar on Tuesday agreed to form a transitional unity government even if they fail to resolve all their differences before a new deadline.

Kiir and Machar signed a peace deal last year under pressure from the United Nations, United States and countries in the region to end a five-year civil war and agreed to form a unity government by Nov. 12.
