UNSC extends peacekeeping mission in South Sudan for a year
Security Council unanimously adopts US-drafted resolution.
The United Nations Security Council has extended mandate of its peacekeeping mission in South Sudan for another year.
The council unanimously adopted a US-drafted resolution that extends the mandate of the 14,000-strong UNMISS force to December next year.
The resolution also threatens sanctions against those who undermine South Sudan's stability and warns that the council will consider "appropriate measures" including an arms embargo "to address the evolving situation."
