A handout photo released by the UNMISS on December 17, 2013 shows civilians seeking protection, arriving at the UNMISS compound adjacent to Juba International Airport following recent fightings in the capital. The government of South Sudan said on December 17, 2013 it has arrested 10 leading figures, many of them former ministers, as clashes raged for two days in the capital. The clashes, which have left scores of people dead, most of them soldiers, pitted troops loyal to President Salva Kiir against those allied to deposed vice-president Riek Machar.
