CAIRO, April 18. / ITAR-TASS /. The number of victims of the attack on the base of UN peacekeepers in southern Sudan has risen to 48 people, african media reports.
Earlier, the UN Coordinator for Humanitarian Affairs in the country Toby Lanzer said about the death of dozens of refugees in the attack of armed men at the base of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) in the village of Bor (Jonglei State).
About 350 people came to the UN base on Thursday, which was a shelter for almost five thousand civilians, allegedly in order to turn over the petition to peacekeepers. The crowd then broke into and opened fire. Mission staff managed to repel the attack.
Clashes in southern Sudan began in mid-December last year between the dominant ethnic Dinka (the President Salva Kiir Mayardit) and the ethnic Nuer (the former vice president Riek Machar).
