Foreign Minister: Attempted coup in South Sudan

Published: 12.16.13, 12:46 / Israel News

A South Sudanese official says a group of disgruntled soldiers and politicians led by a former vice president have attempted to overthrow the government.

 

South Sudanese Foreign Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin said Monday some troops within the main army base raided the weapons store and were repulsed. Benjamin says casualties from fighting Monday morning are still unknown. He says some politicians have been arrested but could not confirm if former Vice President Riek Machar, who he said led the attempt, was among them. (AP)
