Renewed violence erupts in South Sudan

Gunfire has been heard again in the South Sudanese capital, Juba, days after clashes broke out between government and rebel troops. The vice president's residence has also been attacked.



Following a day of calm on Saturday, fighting raged in several neighborhoods in Juba on Sunday as former rebels and government soldiers exchanged fire on the outskirts of the South Sudanese capital.

"Gunshots, heavily armed exchange UN House area once again; going on now since approx. 0825 (0525 UTC)," the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said on Twitter.

The UN runs a camp in the area for people uprooted by the war, close to where both former rebels and government soldiers are camped.
Residents reportedly fled as violence escalated with the use of mortars, rocket-propelled grenades and "heavy ground assault weaponry."


Regional airline Kenya Airways suspended flights to Juba, citing the "uncertain security situation." The US Embassy in Juba warned its citizens to stay indoors.
Officials at President Salva Kiir's office put the death toll at 270 people since Friday.
On Sunday, Kiir called for an immediate ceasefire to end the conflict between the army and troops loyal to former rebel leader-turned-vice president Riek Machar.


A spokesman for Machar blamed government troops for the violence.
"Our forces have been attacked at Jebel base," said James Gatdet Dak, who claimed the attack had been repulsed. "We hope it will not escalate."
Machar's residence was attacked twice during Sunday's violence. Tanks and helicopter gunships were both reportedly used in the attacks.


UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on South Sudanese leaders to take "decisive action" to end the fighting.
"I am deeply frustrated that despite commitments by South Sudan's leaders, fighting has resume," Ban said in a statement. "This senseless violence is unacceptable and has the potential of reversing the progress made so far in the peace process."
