PARIS, JULY 19, 2016: (DGW) African Union, (AU) has approved a regional force for South Sudan after fighting broke out between rival forces that has so far left hundreds of people dead.

Soldiers for this mission, DailyGlobeWatch reliably gathered, would be drawn from five African countries namely Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan and Uganda to join the  12,000-strong UN peacekeeping force already in the country.

The  AU force, according to officials would have stronger mandate but
South Sudan's president, Salva Kiir has been reportedly reluctant to allow in foreign troops.

Clashes over several days between troops loyal to the two men had threatened a recent peace deal.
