South Sudan deal prompts aid appeal

UPDATED 10 MAY 2014 03:12 PM

The top UN aid official in South Sudan has called on the two warring parties to open access for aid after they signed a new peace deal, the conflict's second.

Toby Lanzer called on the government and rebel fighters to open roads for truck convoys and rivers for barges to allow emergency aid through.

The peace deal calls for unhindered humanitarian access and a cessation of hostilities within 24 hours.

A January peace deal signed by the government of President Salva Kiir and rebels backing former vice president Riek Machar fell apart immediately. Fighting began in December.

John Prendergast of the Washington-based Enough Project said the world will learn quickly whether this one holds. He said the two sides are poised to attack in several volatile locations.

Done deal IF it holds. The last one didn't. I hope this one lasts at least long enough for them to get aid to the people who need it.
