UN threatens S. Sudan leaders with sanctions

UN peacekeepers secure a section of the airport in the South Sudanese capital Juba on August 12, 2014 as members of the United Nations Security Council arriveUN Security Council envoys warned South Sudan’s warring leaders they would face sanctions if a civil war that has pushed the young nation to the brink of famine does not stop. “The council has made it very clear: that it is prepared to impose consequences if there continue to be spoilers, if there continue to be people carrying out gross violations of human rights,” US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power said after meeting with President Salva Kiir. Representatives of the 15-member council, who were in the capital Juba on a two-day mission, were due also to meet rebel chief Riek Machar. “We have delivered that message here, we will deliver it to Riek Machar,” she added.
