South Sudan’s government is seeking support from regional countries after opposition leader and former vice president Riek Machar called for armed resistance against President Salva Kiir’s government.
The announcement comes amid heavy fighting between opposition forces in the country’s oil-rich Unity state that led several aid organizations to pull out their workers from the region. The ongoing clashes have sustained concerns that the young country is still on the brink of another civil war.
