Thousands of South Sudanese turned out at the airport in the capital, Juba, to welcome President Salva Kiir home from signing a peace deal aimed at ending the civil war.

The deal will see rebel leader Riek Machar return to government as one of five vice-presidents.

He and President Kiir signed the agreement in neighbouring Sudan.

Speaking at the airport, Mr Kiir said he was committed to the deal adding that talks are continuing in Khartoum to finalise security arrangements.
