South Sudan conflict: Mediators positive after Kiir talks
African mediators say they have had "productive" talks with South Sudan's President Salva Kiir - and one of his main critics - as they try to stop days of clashes spreading.
At least 500 people are believed to have died since last weekend, when President Kiir accused his ex-deputy Riek Machar of a failed coup.
An estimated 34,000 people have taken refuge at United Nations compounds.
