South Sudan gov’t rejects U.S. proposal to deploy additional UN troops

The South Sudanese government has rejected the United States’ proposed deployment of an additional 4000 UN troops to the country. The government maintains the situation is calm at the moment – despite claims to the contrary by supporters of former vice president Riek Machar. South Sudan says it’s only prepared to work with the IGAD-proposed regional protection force. CCTV’s Patrick Oyet reports from Juba.
