JUBA - The United Nations mission in South Sudan said on Saturday five of its staff members had been taken to Khartoum.

Sudan said it had arrested a Norwegian, a Briton and a South African for illegally entering a disputed border area earlier on Saturday and accused them of helping the South Sudan army, a claim the South denied.

"I can confirm that there were five UN staff members that were taken to Khartoum," Josephine Guerrero, a spokeswoman for the mission, said.

Guerrero declined to give any further details.
