US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in South Sudan's capital Juba on Friday, the highest-ranking US official to visit the world's newest nation, which split from former civil war foe Sudan last year.

Clinton is due to meet President Salva Kiir and Foreign Minister Nhial Deng Nhial on the three-hour long trip, where she is expected to highlight Washington's concern over the bitter dispute between Juba and Sudan.
