Death Toll in Clashes Between Ethnic Groups at UN Displacement Camp in South Sudan Now More Than 20
JUBA, South Sudan (AP) The death toll from clashes between displaced people inside a U.N. site in South Sudan has risen to more than 20, with more than 50 others wounded, the medical charity MSF said Friday.
The statement by the organization, which is also known as Doctors Without Borders, said that two of its staff were among those hurt. Some of the injured were being airlifted to the capital, Juba.
While the situation was relatively calm this morning, many women and children who fled the camp are yet to return in fear of escalation, said Luz Linares, MSF's head of mission in the country.
