Who's Keeping the War Going in South Sudan?


With as many as 1.5 million people displaced by conflict and a worsening humanitarian situation, South Sudan's former Vice President Riek Machar has turned down President Salva Kiir's latest peace offer - to incorporate the rebel leader into a transitional unity government prior to elections set for next year. Kiir blames the crisis on the rebel fighters. "I don't know when the suffering will stop," he told journalists during the U.S.-Africa Summit this month. "But if the warring parties would agree to stop fighting, automatically it will end the suffering, because the humanitarian assistance would flow to the people who are in need."
