Tension in S Sudan
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
