Mediators try to broker a peace deal in South Sudan

In South Sudan, African mediators attempting to broker a peace deal have held talks with President Salva Kiir. This comes as clashes continue in the oil producing north, threatening the nation's economic lifeline. The International Red Cross says some 40 bodies have been recovered in the Central African Republic's capital Bangui, where tensions remain high. And Egypt's military-backed government has turned up the pressure on the Muslim Brotherhood, arresting dozens of the group's supporters.
