20 were reported dead after mortars and heavy machine gun fire broke out between military factions in southern Sudan, Reuters reported. The fights broke out when a certain faction of a military unit refused to redeploy with its weapons further north.
Reuters has said that more clashes are expected as South Sudan begins its secession process after voting with an overwhelming majority to break off from northern Sudan.
