South Sudanese Rebels Now on Way to Capital, Spokesman Says

The first of four flights carrying South Sudanese rebels has left for the capital, paving the way for leader Riek Machar to travel Friday and enact a deal to end the country’s civil war, a spokesman said.

Machar’s chief of staff, Simon Gadwech Dual, will also travel Thursday, spokesman Nyarji Roman said in a text message. The government in the capital, Juba, has cleared the weapons the troops want to bring after an earlier dispute, he said.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
