South Sudan's Kiir hopes talks will bring 'immediate end' to war

South Sudan's Kiir hopes talks will bring 'immediate end' to warSouth Sudanese President Salva Kiir said he hopes his meeting with arch-foe Riek Machar in Khartoum on Monday will bring an “immediate end” to the devastating war in their country.

The latest rounds of talks between the bitter rivals come as East African leaders launched new efforts to secure peace in South Sudan, where warring factions face a looming deadline to avert UN sanctions.

Guy paints his own arrows on the road, in hopes of speeding up his commuteA Chinese commuter, fed up with a typically congested intersection on his way home, decided to hit on the brilliant idea of changing the arrow markings on the road himself. Police released surveillance footage of the 28-year-old man, named Cai, painting over a left-turning arrow with a can of white spray paint.

Local papers [PDF in Chinese] reported that the man from Jiangsu, China, told the police that he was irritated that his daily bus ride was always stuck going straight at that intersection, while he noticed the left-turning lane was typically empty. "What a brave, dumb guy," said one commenter on Weibo. Maybe he should've done this at night, suggested another. Authorities returned the road to its original state within the day, and fined Cai 1,000 yuan ($ 151) for his inconsiderate act that could have resulted in an accident at the junction.
