ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, Aug 17 – South Sudan’s government and rebels signed a peace agreement on Monday, hours before the end of a deadline threatening international sanctions, but details of the deal were not immediately known.

The agreement was signed by rebel chief Riek Machar and Pagan Amum, the secretary-general of the ruling party, an AFP correspondent said.

President Salva Kiir watched the signing, after briefly shaking hands with Machar.
