U.N relocates its non-critical staff in South Sudan

United Nations' Mission in South Sudan said it is relocating all non-critical staff from the capital, Juba, to Uganda amid escalating violence as the country's military battles rebel forces.

The mission said in a Twitter update that all remaining civilian staff in Bor - the Jonglei state capital that has been the scene of fierce fighting -had been evacuated to Juba.

The latest violence in the world's newest country has killed hundreds and has world leaders concerned about war.

U.N chief Sunday urged South Sudan's leaders "to do everything in their power" to stop the violence.
