South Sudan warring parties sign final power-sharing agreement

South Sudan warring parties have signed a final power-sharing agreement meant to end five years of civil war.

The ceremony in the Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, follows an agreement reached last month by President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar.

Under the deal, President Kiir will maintain his position while Machar will return to government as one of five vice-presidents to be appointed in an expanded transitional government.
