A ceasefire has been agreed between the government and rebels meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. However, reports have emerged alleging that the government is still attacking rebel-held territory in Jonglei and Unity states.

A rebel demand that the government release detainees before the signing of a ceasefire is preventing a deal from being reached. Government troops are moving on Bor, the last state capital still in rebel hands.

The army has regained control of the key oil city of Bentiu from rebels. Over the past month, fighting has killed nearly 10,000 people.

Fighting has continued in Juba and Bor as ceasefire talks in Ethiopia have been delayed. In Bor, a general and others senior military officers loyal to the government have been killed. Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is in Juba to help peace efforts.

Rebels and the government are holding preliminary ceasefire meetings in Ethiopia even as they continue to fight at home. Rebel leader Riek Machar said his troops will refrain from attacking the capital city of Juba in an attempt to reach a "negotiated settlement." The US said it will give $49.8 million in additional humanitarian assistance to help victims of the conflict.
