The United Nations Security Council imposed an arms embargo on South Sudan on Friday, nearly five years after civil war erupted in the country.

Nine countries voted in favor of a U.S.-drafted resolution, while Russia, China, Ethiopia, Bolivia, Equatorial Guinea and Kazakhstan abstained. Ethiopia said the timing was not right given attempts to revitalize the peace process.
