The Security Council on Tuesday decided to set up a system to impose sanctions on individuals who are regarded as spoilers of the efforts to bring peace to South Sudan.

The 15-member Council unanimously adopted a resolution to impose targeted sanctions and an arms embargo to support the peace process in the country.

The new African nation has been embroiled in conflict which broke out in December 2013 between government and rebel forces.
