International monitors express concern over risk to South Sudan peace deal



International monitors in South Sudan say they are worried over the continued clashes threatening the implementation of a revitalised peace deal.

Sporadic clashes are taking place in different parts of the country pitting government forces and different opposition armed groups.

The ceasefire observers say they have been documenting skirmishes in Central Equatoria state allegedly involving the government forces and the rebel National Salvation Front (NAS).

There have also been violent attacks in different centres being reported in Upper Nile State and Central Equatoria states where forces are being trained.

The monitors are urging South Sudan to take urgent action to prevent the training camps from disintegrating into war camps.
