South Sudan President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar late Sunday signed a deal to end more than 13 months of fighting in a civil war that has left tens of thousands dead, an AFP reporter saw.
"Complete cessation of hostilities in South Sudan is expected as of this morning (Monday)," Seyoum Mesfin, a negotiator from the regional IGAD bloc, told reporters in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa where the ceasefire deal was signed.
The two leaders have signed –- and then broken –- at least six previous ceasefire agreements since fighting began in December 2013.
