South Sudan ‘back to war’ with hundreds killed

Hundreds are reported to have been killed as fighting intensifies in South Sudan with claims the country is “back to war”.

A spokesman for Vice-President Riek Machar told the BBC that rival factions were clashing and hundreds have been killed.

Forces loyal to Machar say government troops attacked their positions in the capital, Juba. But those within the government, including Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth, say reports of war are “dishonest”.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned what he calls “senseless violence”.

The UN Security Council is holding an emergency session to discuss South Sudan.
