The East African regional body, Igad, says that South Sudan's government has agreed to let in a new international protection force to try to save a peace deal.

Ethnic clashes last month left at least 300 people dead and threatened to revive a civil war that has killed tens of thousands.

A 12,000-strong UN mission in South Sudan was unable to prevent attacks.

There is no clear timetable for the deployment and South Sudan has not yet confirmed Igad's announcement.
