South Sudan's president has sacked his entire cabinet, in an apparent power struggle with other senior leaders.



The president issued a decree dismissing all ministers and deputy ministers, as well as his Vice-President.



No clear reason was given for the sackings, but analysts say the President and the Vice-President have been embroiled in a power struggle for months.



South Sudan has suffered from chronic economic problems since it split from Sudan in 2011.
