Football Fans killed in South Sudan

I saw on twitter that a shooting had occurred in South Sudan killing football fans. A crowd was watching an English Premier League game near Juba when a gunman open fired. According to a local media report, at least 11 people are dead and others have been inured. The gunman escaped despite a "prompt response" from security forces. The article also mentions that violence had occurred earlier in the year when political factions "clashed, prompting the vice-president, Riek Machar, to flee the country.
