Ambush on South Sudanese Highway Kills at Least 30, Army Says

At least 30 people were killed when gunmen ambushed vehicles on a South Sudanese highway that connects the import-dependent country with Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, the army said.

A truck carrying about 75 civilians between Yei town and the capital, Juba, was attacked Saturday, military spokesman Lul Ruai Koang said by phone. About 20 people were wounded, while passengers on two other trucks traveling alongside escaped unharmed, he said.
