South Sudan: Fighting Breaks Out In Capital

Heavy fighting broke out in South Sudan's capital, Juba, on March 5, Sudan Tribune reported. The fighting started at about 9 a.m. local time at the Geida military barracks, the same place where violence began on Dec. 15 between soldiers loyal to President Salva Kiir and those loyal to former Vice President Riek Machar. South Sudan's Ministry of Information said the fighting was related to a pay dispute. Skirmishes between the South Sudanese government and rebel forces have continued despite a January cease-fire.
