South Sudan's President Salva Kiir (L) walks prior to a meeting on March 3, 2015 in Addis Ababa, as part of the latest round of peace talks to end over 14 months of conflictThe UN Security Council on Tuesday unanimously adopted a resolution to slap sanctions on South Sudan's warring factions, ratcheting up pressure as a deadline loomed to reach a peace deal.

Regional mediators have given South Sudan's President Salva Kiir and rebel chief Riek Machar until Thursday to reach a final deal to end 14 months of war that have killed tens of thousands of people.
