The President of the South Sudan Salva Kiir has sacked his long-standing rival the opposition leader Riek Machar and replaced him as first vice president with General Taban Gai, the former Mining Minister. Earlier this month fighting between government troops and forces loyal to Mr. Machar left hundreds died. Alastair Leithead reports.
Riek Machar left the city two weeks ago. He refused to come back until a neutral peace keeping force has been deployed to guarantee his safety.
