South Sudan’s rival factions on Thursday agreed to a new cease-fire that will begin on Christmas Eve. It’s the latest attempt to end a civil war in the world’s youngest nation that has killed tens of thousands of people. South Sudan’s government and armed groups signed the agreement during peace talks in Ethiopia, where they agreed to end hostilities, freeze military positions, and release prisoners of war.
