Newscast Media KHARTOUM—In South Sudan the government and the rebels are
accusing each other of having violated the cease-fire. Many displaced persons have
little faith in the agreement anyway and are refusing to return home.

The cease-fire in South Sudan is fragile. The government and the rebels have blamed
each other for the violations and insist that they now intend to honor the agreement,
while the main victims, the refugees, have little hope that there will be peace.
