Despite A ‘Football Match For Peace’ In South Sudan, 3 Killed As Match Was On

The UN refugee agency, UNHCR, says three people have been killed in South Sudan in clashes that broke out during a football match organised to promote peaceful co-existence.
One refugee from neighbouring Sudan and two South Sudanese died in the fighting, in Maban county, near the Sudanese border.
Tensions have been growing between refugees and locals for weeks over the alleged theft of pigs and goats.
The UN says that the deaths provoked further inter-communal violence, in which scores of people were injured and several houses were burnt to the ground.SD
