UN mission says 5 staff members taken to Khartoum

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.
