NAIROBI, July 11 (Xinhua) -- Two Chinese UN peacekeepers were killed in renewed fighting between South Sudan's rival army factions in capital Juba, a UN official confirmed to Xinhua on Monday.

The official at the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), who asked not to be identified, said the armoured vehicle that a group of Chinese peacekeepers were travelling in on duty was hit by a mortar shell on Sunday, leading to the deaths and injuries.

""I can confirm that two Chinese were killed on Sunday evening and eight others injured. Four of the injured are in a critical condition,"" the UN official said.

Fighting between government troops of President Salva Kiir and forces loyal to Vice President Riek Machar resumed on Monday.

""The situation in Juba is still tense as heavy artillery and explosions could be heard,"" the UN official said.

The UN mission in South Sudan on Monday reported heavy fighting in Juba, including in areas close to its compounds in Jebel and Tomping.

The latest round of violence followed deadly clashes between the rival factions on Friday and Sunday in the capital city.

South Sudan's Health Ministry says at least 271 people were killed in Friday's clashes. The exact number of those killed in fighting since Sunday is not known.

There are fears that the war-torn country could descend into civil war again.

President Kiir and former rebel leader Machar have fought a civil war which broke out in December 2013 and left tens of thousands of people dead.

A peace deal signed by the two men last August under UN pressure led to the formation of a national government in April with Machar returning to his old post.


LONDON Anthony Mason Jersey , Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- British Prime Minister Theresa May and her leading ministers will head to Manchester at the weekend for the last of the 2017 political conferences.

Security around the conference area will be even tighter this year following the terror attack earlier this year when a bomb was detonated at Manchester Arena, just minutes away from Manchester Central where the party conference opens Sunday.

The showpiece event will come next Wednesday when May delivers her keynote conference speech, on the theme "Building a country that works for everyone".

It will be May's first big test following the snap general election she called in June when instead of improving Conservative numbers in the House of Commons Allan Houston Jersey , she emerged running a minority government.

The dismal performance in the election led a number of leading political commentators to speculate on May's chance of survival as prime minister. Next week's conference was cited as a make or break event for May.

The speech will also give political pundits the chance to compare May's reception to the pop-star given to Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn at their conference which ended Wednesday in Brighton.

Another major focus during the conference will come on Tuesday afternoon when the Conservatives hold a debate about Britain's departure from the European Union.

Brexit Secretary David Davis will speak in the debate focusing on securing the best Brexit deal for Britain. International trade secretary Liam Fox will also speak in the debate.

Also on Tuesday the foreign secretary Boris Johnson will lead a debate on promoting a global Britain.

Away from the conference area a number of marches and demonstrations will take place from a number of groups opposed to government policies.

Manchester has become a favorite location in the north of England for the Conservatives because of the ability to throw a huge security wall around the one-time railway terminus that now serves as a conference venue, stretching to the plush Midland Hotel which is used as the headquarters for the conference. It will be the party's fifth conference in the northern city since 2009.

City officials have predicted that staging the conference is expected to generate more than 40 million U.S. dollars for the Manchester economy, giving a boost to the hotel and catering as well as leisure sectors. May and her front-team of ministers will join around 12 Kristaps Porzingis Knicks Jersey ,000 delegates and exhibitors at the event.
