Peace talks between South Sudan ‘s two warring factions have resumed in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa. The mediator of the talks, a regional organization known as IGAD, says it is consulting with both sides on “the conduct of a political dialogue toward national reconciliation and healing.”

The conflict began in mid-December last year, pitting forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and rebel soldiers loyal to dismissed former vice president Riek Machar.

Despite agreeing to a ceasefire deal in January, the two sides have continued to fight for control of strategic towns. The violence has displaced more than 700,000 people.
