South Sudan unrest: UN warns of humanitarian crisis after days of clashes
Date created :
Although a ceasefire in South Sudan's capital seems to be tentatively holding after days of violence, foreign nationals are fleeing the tense city. Elsewhere, refugees are trying to return to Sudan, the country they fought for independence from. And in Mali, several people are killed in the northern city of Gao during anti-government protests. They accuse the police of firing on them as they gathered for an unsanctioned rally.
Also, South African President Jacob Zuma visits a site in northern France to remember the black South African soldiers who fought and died there in World War I. For almost a century, they have not been honoured on the same terms as white troops.
