South Sudan misses deadline to form unity government


South Sudan has missed a key deadline to create a transitional government, after the president increased the number of provinces from 10 to 28.
The plan for a unity government was part of a peace deal in August to end the civil war which began in 2013 when President Salva Kiir accused his then-deputy Riek Machar of plotting a coup.
The two sides blame each other for violating the terms of the agreement.
Thousands of people have been killed and millions displaced since 2013.
President Kiir, who said he had “reservations” about the August peace deal, appointed 28 new governors for the new provinces, just as rebel delegates arrived in the capital Juba, to begin work on the new government.
