International efforts are intensifying to end the bloodshed in South Sudan, where thousands of people are believed to have died in the past 10 days.

The UN Security Council is almost doubling the number of peacekeepers to 12,500 in the world's newest state.

US Secretary of State John Kerry urged both President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar to end hostilities and begin mediated political talks.

The fighting has exposed ethnic divisions in South Sudan.
