China has called for an end to conflict in South Sudan where fighting has caused thousands of people to flee from their homes and prompted warnings to oil companies to shut down operations.

Four people were killed this week when two mortar bombs hit a U.N. compound and a site housing civilians in a town near South Sudan's oilfields.
