UNITED NATIONS - Five UN peacekeepers and seven civilians working with the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan were killed in an ambush near the Gumuruk settlement in Jonglei State, the United Nations said on Tuesday.

"At least nine additional peacekeepers and civilians were injured in the attack and some remain unaccounted for," the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said in a statement.
