Sudan talks yield little as tensions mount

African Union mediator Thabo Mbeki arrived in the South Sudan capital Juba yesterday to meet with President Salva Kiir for the latest round of peace talks.

It comes during an escalation of clashes between the two Sudans.

South Sudan claimed on Tuesday to have shot down a Sudanese fighter jet over a border area on the southern territory.

Recent talks in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa are also reported to have ended in failure.
