Political leaders in South Sudan have been urged by the UN Secretary-General to implement the latest ceasefire deal they agreed on Monday.
President Salvar Kiir and former Vice-President Riek Machar signed the agreement in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa under the auspices of the Inter-governmental Authority on Development (IGAD).
IGAD, a trading bloc of eight East African countries, has been mediating negotiations between the two leaders to end eight months of conflict which broke out in South Sudan in December last year.
The UN Secretary-General has called on both parties to immediately implement the agreement and uphold their commitment to establishing a Transitional Government of National Unity.
Thousands of people in South Sudan have died and more than one million others forced to flee their homes.
Over 100,000 are currently sheltering in UN protection sites across the country.
