An investigation is under way to determine what sparked clashes at a site where displaced people are being protected by the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).

The Mission says that up to 60 people were injured in the clashes which broke out on Sunday between two groups of people at the site sheltering up to 24,000 people in Jebel.

Teargas and warning shots were fired in an attempt to separate the groups and two Nepalese peacekeepers were injured in the fracas.

Sworo Charles Elisha asked UNMISS Spokesperson Joseph Contreras about the incident.
