S.Sudan Rival Leaders to Meet Again    06/25 06:21

   JUBA, South Sudan (AP) -- South Sudan President Salva Kiir has arrived in 
neighboring Sudan to meet again with rival Riek Machar amid fragile efforts to 
end their country's five-year civil war.

   Sudan's state-run news agency SUNA says Machar arrived Sunday in Khartoum.

   The rivals last week met face-to-face for the first time in nearly two years 
in neighboring Ethiopia, but South Sudan's government rejected the idea of 
Machar returning again as Kiir's deputy.

   Tens of thousands of people have been killed in the civil war, which has 
created Africa's largest refugee crisis since the 1994 Rwandan genocide. One 
peace attempt failed when Machar fled his vice president post, and the country, 
amid fresh fighting in the capital, Juba, in July 2016.

   Kenya is expected to host another round of talks in the weeks ahead.
