South Sudan's Vice President Riek Machar has been ousted as head of his party and the national armed forces, according to party rivals. They say Machar was deposed following a three-day gathering of senior members of the Sudan People's Liberation Army-in-Opposition (SPLM-IO). Machar was a pivotal figure in South Sudan's descent into civil war in 2013 and his removal could upset the delicate post-conflict balance in the country.
