Three months after a peace deal was signed in South Sudan, violence continues to rage in the country. Some members of smaller tribes say the army is not protecting them and have enrolled in training camps.
Fighting in South Sudan has prevented food production, displaced communities and disrupted markets. According to a new UN report, the country's hunger crisis has worsened significantly over the past year.
The flood of refugees fleeing South Sudan aren't "a big deal," says President Salva Kiir in an exclusive interview with DW, adding that many were "chased away by social media" in a conspiracy against his government.
South Sudan's government claims progress is being made in implementing a peace agreement signed in 2015. But a closer look reveals that many pledges remain unfulfilled.
A new Human Rights Watch (HRW) report has called for tougher sanctions on senior officials in South Sudan for failing to end atrocities. HRW wants to see President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar punished, too.
