Fighting kills at least 20 in South Sudan displaced peoples camp
At least 20 people have died in fighting in a camp for displaced people in South Sudan, a medical aid group said on Friday.
Tensions started rising last week when women from different groups tussled at a water point in the camp in Upper Nile State's capital Malakal, according to state Information Minister Luke Saadala.
Full-blown clashes erupted after a man was stabbed to death on Thursday, the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), which runs the camp, said.
"The conflict has resulted in the death of more than 20 people so far and injuries to more than 50 others," aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres South Sudan said.
The camp, which hosts at least 50,000 people, opened when people started arriving there at the start of South Sudan's civil war in 2013.
