South Sudan ceasefire talks delay

Hopes of a quick ceasefire in South Sudan have been dashed after face-to-face talks between leaders of the government and rebel groups were delayed.

The rival groups are continuing talks with negotiators in the Ethiopian captial, Addis Ababa, but it is unknown when the parties will come face-to-face.

More than 1,000 people have died, and at least 180,000 people have been displaced since the conflict began on 15 December.

Nick Childs reports.
