Obama urges an end to 'cycle of violence' in S. Sudan

A member of South Sudanese anti-government forces poses with his machine gun on March 4, 2014, in Malakal, South SudanUS President Barack Obama called Friday for South Sudan’s leaders to “end the cycle of violence” and work towards reconciliation in the world’s youngest nation after a year of civil war. “Last December, when a political conflict erupted into violence in South Sudan, the hope and optimism the world felt with the founding of the new nation in 2011 was overtaken by images of bloodshed and grief,” Obama said in a statement. “Today, I appeal to the leaders of South Sudan to pursue peace as a way to honour those who have died,” he added. The war in the world’s newest nation erupted in December last year, when President Salva Kiir ousted his vice president Riek Machar, accusing him of trying to organise a coup.
