South Sudan’s rival forces traded accusations on Friday over violations of a cessation hostilities agreement after fighting broke out in Unity state, forcing aid workers and civilians to seek protection at the United Nations base in the capital, Bentiu. During the violence approximately 340 civilians fled from Bentiu and took shelter with UNMISS troops stationed at the airport, who later escorted them from the airport to the protection of civilian area in the UNMISS compound outside Bentiu. The opposition is now claiming to be in full control of Bentiu.
