Fighting at U.N. compound in South Sudan

Fighting at a United Nations compound sheltering people fleeing conflict in South Sudan has killed 18 people, including two Medicins Sans Frontieres workers, the international medical aid group said.
South Sudan descended into civil war in December 2013 when a row between President Salva Kiir and his sacked deputy Riek Machar ended with fighting that often occurred along ethnic fault lines.

People have been taking refuge in U.N.-administered "protection of civilian" sites, or POCs, since then. Thousands have been killed and more than 2 million people displaced from their homes since late 2013.
