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.
