More than 37,000 flee South Sudan for Uganda: UN

Uganda military personnel are seen on military and police trucks as they drive towards Juba, South Sudan, at Nimule border point on July 14, 2016More than 37,000 people have fled South Sudan for neighbouring Uganda in the last three weeks following intense fighting between rival troops that left hundreds dead, the UN’s refugee body said Tuesday. An already shaky 2015 peace deal signed after a bloody civil war in the world’s newest nation looks uncertain after the clashes between troops loyal to President Salva Kiir and those allied with former rebel leader Riek Machar. “In the past three weeks there have been more refugee arrivals in Uganda than in the entire first six months of 2016,” when 33,838 crossed the border, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in a statement.
