South Sudan Rivals Sign Security Pact

South Sudan’s warring parties signed a deal on security arrangements on Friday, the latest step toward a final agreement to end the almost five-year civil war. Representatives of President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar signed the pact in Khartoum, the capital of neighboring Sudan. The agreement concerns key issues including unifying and reorganizing the army, establishing a joint security committee and removing fighters from population centers, the state-run Sudan News Agency reported late Thursday.
