Shot Chinese peacekeepers flown to Entebbe


A total of 43 Chinese nationals last week arrived at Entebbe airport on a chartered plane from Juba South Sudan.

A Chinese peacekeeper Officer Chen Ying of the Chinese army was airlifted to Entebbe for treatment.

He was injured when his unit was attacked by South Sudanese soldiers in Juba.

Two Chinese peacekeepers were killed in the attack.

Meanwhile, the Chinese embassy in South Sudan has been partially evacuated, according to the website of China Radio International.

“Non-essential embassy staff are among 49 Chinese nationals who have returned to China on a special flight which left South Sudan on Saturday,” the radio station reported.

However, the exact number of diplomatic staff evacuated was not specified in the official report.

China is among a growing number of countries which are evacuating their citizens from Juba amid fears fighting between supporters of the country’s president and vice-president may erupt again.
