East African states are considering sending troops into South Sudan to help enforce a ceasefire deal between government forces and rebels, a regional bloc said, amid persistent accusations by both sides that the other is breaking the truce.The IGAD grouping, which is mediating peace talks between the two sides, said in a statement it was discussing a "protection and stabilisation force" with the African Union and United Nations.All except Rwanda already provide forces to the 22,000-strong African peacekeeping force in Somalia battling al Qaeda-linked militants.Rebel and government negotiators have not met face-to-face since signing the ceasefire deal -- a truce that failed to stick.The talks have stalled over a rebel demand for the release of four political detainees and the withdrawal of Ugandan troops supporting the national SPLA army, as well as disagreement over what exactly should be up for negotiation.
