Confidential UN report details South Sudan threats
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.
