, Kampala December 20 — Ugandan soldiers have been deployed in South Sudan’s capital Juba following a request by the country’s government to help secure the city, Uganda’s government-owned New Vision newspaper reported Friday.
The paper said the first batch of special forces soldiers had helped to secure the airport and assisted in the evacuation of Ugandan nationals from Juba, the scene of a week of fierce clashes between rival South Sudanese army units.
