Heavy gunfire erupted overnight in South Sudan's capital Juba, embassies and witnesses said, saying the fighting appeared to have broken out in a barracks close to the city centre.

Statements from the US and British embassies in Juba urged their nationals to avoid unnecessary movements. The US embassy said there were "reports from multiple reliable sources of ongoing security incidents and sporadic gunfire in multiple locations across Juba".
