Saudi Arabia discounts petrol prices - Refugees find new hope in German classes - The Cost of UN Peacekeeping
The role of AU forces is on the rise as African leaders agreed on Monday to send a large AU military force to South Sudan with a more robust mandate than the 12,000-strong UN protection force already in the country.
Renewed violence has shaken areas around South Sudan's capital Juba. Aid organizations are warning that the humanitarian crisis could spiral out of control. Germany has called for sanctions and more diplomatic pressure.
UN human rights experts say women have suffered more violence than anyone else in South Sudan. The UN's refugee agency also announced that there are now over one million South Sudanese refugees in neighboring countries.
