South Sudan: 1 dead, 6 hurt in gun attack on soccer team

The Associated Press

JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — Gunmen attacked a bus carrying players and officials of one of South Sudan's top-flight soccer clubs, killing the driver and injuring six others.

The Confederation of African Football says the Young Stars team was traveling from the capital Juba back to their hometown of Torit when the attack happened.

CAF says the club chairman was among the injured. It says the gunmen were unidentified.

The Young Stars were going home after losing in the South Sudan Cup final.

CAF says the bus attack followed an attack on a bar in Juba, where gunmen opened fire on people watching a soccer game on TV, killing 11.

South Sudan has been in a near-constant state of civil war since it gained independence from Sudan in 2011.
