World Today

The president of South Sudan has signed a peace deal with rebels hoping to end a 20 month-long fight between South Sudan’s army and rebels there.

The rebels involved in the deal also happen to be led by South Sudan’s president Salva Kiir’s former deputy. Salva Kiir said he was signing the document despite having serious reservations.

The African Union has cautiously welcomed the move, but it says the real test will be whether the deal actually holds. CCTV’s Girum Chala filed this report.
