President Barack Obama will discuss a "Plan B" for South Sudan with African leaders Monday that could include sanctions or other penalties if the country's warring parties do not forge a peace deal by mid-August, a U.S. official said. Speaking to reporters on Air Force One as Obama traveled to Ethiopia from Kenya, the official said Monday's meeting was not expected to lead to a breakthrough to halt the country's civil war, which has raged since December 2013 .Obama is on a two-country tour of Africa. The presidents of Uganda and Kenya, the prime minister of Ethiopia, the chairwoman of the African Union and the foreign minister of Sudan are all expected to attend the meeting in Addis Ababa. Earlier in Kenya, Obama closed his historic visit with an address to the Kenyan people, declaring that the country is at a "crossroads" between promise and peril.
