Independence day anniversary turns bloody in South Sudan
There is bloodshed in South Sudan as scores have been reported dead among which are soldiers and civilians after a gun battle erupted in the city of Juba.
There are now fears of a return to all-out war after it was reported that gun duels broke out across the city on the eve of the country’s fifth independence.
According to eyewitnesses, soldiers have been seen taking wounded casualties to the hospital after fighting broke outside the presidential compound as President Salva Kiir was meeting with first vice president and former rebel leader Riek Machar which soon spread through the city.
Inside sources say a total count of the dead was not available because soldiers were not allowing doctors to examine the bodies as another source revealed that the morgue at Juba Teaching Hospital was full of dead bodies.
