Hundreds flee South Sudan after rebel attacks

Reports from South Sudan say that around 250 refugees have arrived from the Democratic Republic of Congo in recent days, after fleeing attacks by the Lord’s Resistance Army – a rebel force originally from Uganda.

The border between South Sudan and the DR Congo is officially closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

A local official in Western Equatoria State said the South Sudanese military had been deployed to offer protection.

The UN refugee agency, which is helping the new arrivals, says they are all in quarantine for two weeks.
