The UN Security Council has threatened to impose sanctions on Sudan and South Sudan if the two nations fail to halt the recent violence.

The unanimously backed resolution calls on Khartoum and Juba to resume negotiations on disputed issues within two weeks.

Fighting in recent weeks has raised fears of a return to all-out war.

South Sudan became independent last year, but disputes with the north over territorial issues remained unresolved.
