(Associated Press) – The U.N. Security Council narrowly approved a U.S.-drafted resolution imposing an arms embargo on South Sudan Friday over objections that it could hurt African efforts to end the five-year conflict in the world’s newest nation. The resolution received the minimum nine “yes” votes. The six other council members abstained — Russia, China, Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea, Kazakhstan and Bolivia. In addition to an immediate arms embargo, the resolution imposes a travel ban and asset freeze on South Sudan’s deputy defense chief for logistics, Malek Reuben Riak Rengu, and former chief of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army, Paul Malong Awan.
