IGAD holds fresh South Sudan peace talks in Ethiopia

The talks hope to revive and revise peace deal signed in 2015, but South Sudan has been at war for much of its existence, with nearly a quarter of its population displaced.

South Sudan's rival factions are meeting in Ethiopia for another round of talks to end the four-year civil war.

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development, or IGAD, is leading the process of bringing all the sides together.

But each side has different demand.

It comes a day after fighting broke out between government forces and fighters loyal to the opposition.

Al Jazeera's Hiba Morgan reports from Juba.
