S’Sudan: Gunfire erupts at army HQ

Gunfire has erupted inside the main army barracks in South Sudan’s capital, where clashes last year sparked wider conflict, witnesses have told the BBC.

It started at about 09:00 local time (06:00 GMT) at the barracks situated in Juba near the university.

Witnesses say people in that area have started to flee to places of safety.

The government is yet to comment and it is not clear what the trouble is about or if it is related to the conflict that began in December last year.
