South Sudan: Smoke rises over Juba during renewed outbreaks of violence

Smoke was seen rising over the Eye Radio Compound in Juba, the capital of South Sudan, on Sunday, following resurgence in violence over the weekend.
An estimated 272 people have died as a result of fighting in the past couple of days, resulting in an increasingly intense security situation. It is reported that soldiers from various armed factions have been mostly affected.
South Sudan gained independence on the 9th July 2011, following a referendum, but conflict resurged in the newly-formed country in December 2013 when President of South Sudan Salva Kiir Mayardit accused Vice President Riek Machar of attempting a coup.
