A confidential U.N. report says South Sudan's deadly fighting in July was directed by the highest levels of government, and that leaders are intent on a military solution that has escalated the conflict from a "primarily political to tribal war".The U.N. Security Council has threatened to impose an arms embargo if South Sudan's government doesn't comply with a plan to deploy an extra 4,000 peacekeepers to protect civilians.Tens of thousands of Nuer have taken shelter in U.N. camps in South Sudan under often dire conditions as a peace deal signed a year ago threatens to fall apart amid continued fighting.The report comes just days after the Security Council visited South Sudan to pressure the government to allow in the 4,000 additional peacekeepers.
