Ten­sion in S Su­dan

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

THE UN Mis­sion in South Su­dan (UN­MISS) has re­it­er­ated its call on all the war­ring par­ties in­volved in South Su­dan’s con­flict to im­me­di­ately cease hos­til­i­ties and fully im­ple­ment the peace agree­ment.

UN­MISS said it was deeply con­cerned about the out­break of fight­ing be­tween the South Su­danese army (SPLA) and SPLA in Op­po­si­tion (SPLM-OI) in and around Malakal town, the Up­per Nile state cap­i­tal, in­clud­ing in­ter­mit­tent shelling that had been re­ported over the last few days.

The sit­u­a­tion in Malakal, ac­cord­ing to the mis­sion, re­mained tense fol­low­ing clashes be­tween ri­val fac­tions. – ANA
