South Sudanese take refuge in Ethiopia

Conflict in South Sudan, triggering a large refugee influx into Ethiopia began in mid-December when South Sudanese President Salva Kiir accused senior politicians loyal to former Vice President Riek Machar of staging a coup. Peace talks in Addis Ababa, set to resume again after many attempts, have made little progress as the war drags on in the world’s newest nation. It is the worst violence the country has seen since Juba gained independence from long time civil-war foe Sudan in 2011.
