At least 14 people were wounded in South Sudan Thursday after gunfire broke out during an angry demonstration outside a UN peacekeeping base in the war-ravaged town of Bor, the mayor said.

"Local youth were demonstrating... there was shooting of guns," said mayor Nhial Majok told AFP, adding that at least 14 young men were wounded near the base, where almost 5,000 civilians are sheltering. Some of the young men were armed with guns, he said, but it was not immediately clear who had fired the shots.
