Mission in South Sudan said.Political rivalry between South Sudan President Salva Kiir, an ethnic Dinka, and his former deputy Riek Machar, a Nuer, led to civil war in 2013 that has often followed ethnic lines.The war has driven more than 3 million people from their homes.In December, the then head of the U.N.
