An alliance of several South Sudanese rebel groups has said it is boycotting the latest round of peace talks after accusing the state of killing one of its senior officials.

The South Sudan Opposition Movement Alliance did not sign up to the peace deal which ended five years of civil war and led to the formation of a unity government last year.

Peace talks organised by the Roman Catholic church were due to begin over the weekend in Rome.

In a statement the rebel alliance accused state intelligence services from South Sudan of being behind the killing last month in Uganda of General Abraham Wana Yoane.
