United Nations says South Sudan impounds peacekeeping cargo

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations said on Friday that South Sudanese security personnel had impounded four trucks carrying armored vehicles and equipment for peacekeepers in the capital Juba and assaulted the drivers, accusing them of transporting weapons to rebels.

"As of this morning, the (U.N.) mission is still trying to obtain the release of all trucks and their cargo. It calls on the government to immediately release the trucks along with the consignment of vehicles and equipment," U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters in New York.
