cease-fire monitors have begun work in South Sudan, officials said Monday, amid repeated claims both government and rebels are breaking a deal to stop weeks of bloodshed in which thousands have been killed.Thousands are believed to have been killed in the fighting pitting forces loyal to President Salva Kiir against a loose coalition of army defectors and ethnic militia nominally headed by sacked vice president Riek Machar, a seasoned guerrilla fighter.The government also dismissed rebel claims it was using mercenary forces to fight against them -- including Sudanese and Congolese guerrillas -- as lies.Rebel spokesman Lul Ruai Koang has also accused South Sudan's government of using foreign fighters, including rebels from neighbouring war-torn Sudan.
