US, EU threaten sanctions for South Sudan warring parties

A picture taken on March 16, 2014 shows the damage allegedly caused by a Sudanese government air strike in NatiqaSouth Sudan’s government and rebel forces face possible sanctions if they fail to progress with peace talks and stick to a ceasefire deal, United States and European Union envoys warned Wednesday. The European Union “stands ready to consider targeted restricted measures against individuals obstructing the political process,” EU envoy Alexander Rondos told reporters. US envoy Donald Booth, speaking alongside him, said Washington was also “considering what measures might be taken.” South Sudan’s government has been at war with rebel groups since December 15, when a clash between troops loyal to President Salva Kiir and those loyal to sacked vice president Riek Machar snowballed into full-scale fighting.
