Con­fi­den­tial UN re­port de­tails South Su­dan threats

Fiji Sun - - World News - Fox News

Juba: The UN am­bu­lance car­ried an ur­gent pa­tient: a Su­danese woman in labour. South Su­dan gov­ern­ment sol­diers stopped the am­bu­lance 15 times at check­points in the cap­i­tal, Juba. The Au­gust 2 jour­ney, which usu­ally takes 15 min­utes, lasted nearly two hours. “The baby was dead on de­liv­ery,” says a con­fi­den­tial re­port from UN Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral Ban Ki-moon to the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil. The re­port, ob­tained by The As­so­ci­ated

Press, is a stark list of the ways South Su­dan’s gov­ern­ment has ob­structed the U.N. peace­keep­ing mis­sion in a coun­try dev­as­tated by civil war.
