South Sudan's army was poised for a major offensive against rebel forces, as the UN Security Council called for emergency talks in a bid to avert a slide towards civil war.

The French mission to the United Nations said the meeting, would notably consider reinforcing the UN mission in the country.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon said earlier that he would ask for "additional troops, police and logistical assets", although he did not specify numbers.
