South Sudan's rival factions resumed peace talks on Thursday to end 20 months of bloodshed, under growing international pressure and the threat of further sanctions if an Aug. 17 deadline is not met.Last month, IGAD presented a compromise proposal to Kiir and Machar to end the conflict, which was sparked by their power struggle.The proposal includes a 30-month interim government that would allow both men to stay in power, with Kiir remaining president.
