UN trapped inside base due to South Sudan fighting
Fighting between South Sudan's army and rebels in the capital of one of its oil-rich states is forcing UN personnel to remain inside a base where more than 20,000 frightened residents are seeking refuge, officials said Wednesday.

 

UN personnel are unable to leave the base in Malakal because of the fighting, said Joe Contreras, a spokesman for the UN mission in South Sudan. Ten people died at the hospital at the UN base on Tuesday. (AP)
