Juba (AFP) - US Secretary of State John Kerry landed in South Sudan Friday to demand a ceasefire in a brutal four-month-old civil war that has sparked dire warnings of genocide and famine.

"Secretary Kerry will reiterate the need for all parties to respect the cessation of hostilities agreement (and) to immediately cease attacks on civilians," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
