UN Official Calls for Arms Embargo on South Sudan

“The U.N.’s head of peacekeeping, Hervé Ladsous, urged the Security Council on Wednesday to impose a comprehensive arms embargo on both the government and opposition in South Sudan. On the eve of the world’s youngest country’s fourth birthday, Ladsous told a small group of reporters that the situation on the ground was ‘absolutely appalling.’ He cited the conflict that erupted in December 2013 between President Salva Kiir and his deputy turned political rival, Riek Machar, which has killed thousands and displaced more than 2 million people.”
