JUBA - South Sudan's army shot dead 10 people protesting against the relocation of a local council headquarters in the country's northwest over the weekend, the United Nations said on Sunday.

Human rights groups regularly accuse South Sudan's army, a collection of poorly trained former guerrilla fighters and militiamen, of human rights abuses.

The violence began after the army was deployed around Wau, the capital of the country's Western Bahr el Ghazal state, to dismantle road blocks set up by civilians protesting against the relocation of the municipal council headquarters, Liam McDowall, spokesman for the UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), said.
