As fighting between rival members of the army continues in South Sudan, the United Nations is deeply concerned about this situation.

On Friday, the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) has strongly condemned the unprovoked attack on its base in the town of Akobo in Jonglei State on Thursday in which at least 11 people were killed.

UNMISS has also confirmed that two of its Indian Battalion soldiers were killed and one wounded in the attack.
