Fighting In South Sudan Camp Leaves 13 Displaced People Dead: UN

In recent months, South Sudan’s Upper Nile State has been an epicenter of violence mainly orchestrated by armed militias.

Intercommunal fighting in a camp for displaced people in the northern part of South Sudan has killed 13 people, the United Nations mission running the camp says.

The clashes between two ethnic communities living in the camp in Upper Nile State’s capital, Malakal, first erupted on Thursday when a man was stabbed to death.

“Initial reports to the mission indicated that at least three persons have been killed and more than 20 injured with some of them receiving treatment at the mission’s hospital,” a spokesperson for the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), Ben Malor, said in a statement on Friday.
