According to BBC Salva Kiir and Riek Machar signed an agreement in Addis Ababa on Friday: a ceasefire, a new constitution to be drafted and fresh elections.  They are expected to allow humanitarian aid into affected areas.  Let's all pray that this ceasefire will last, unlike the last one.  Thanks USA: the pressure from your government on this has been a very  important factor in getting any kind of agreement.

Pressure needs to come from all over.  I believe more sanctions will be directed to both government troops and the rebel forces.  I read today that fighting continues in Upper Nile and Unity States. Maybe they didn't receive the Cessation of Hostilities agreement. Very sad and disappointing news.
