Fighting broke out in a military barracks in war-torn South Sudan's capital Juba on Wednesday, witnesses said, although the cause of the clashes was not immediately clear. According to independent Tamazuj radio, the fighting started after soldiers argued with a military pay committee. It said several people were dead, but there was no immediate confirmation of the number of casualties and the army could not be reached for comment.
