Pistols and guns on the ground

The government of South Sudan is continuing to remove weapons from civilian hands.

The United Nations mission in South Sudan (UNMIS) says the disarmament programme, which started on 12 March, has been preceding well despite some reports of human rights violations.

UNMISS has been helping the new country since it voted to secede and declared independence from Sudan in July last year.

UNMISS spokesman Kouider Zerrouk discussed the disarmament process in South Sudan with Donn Bobb.
