U.N. Security Council to meet Sunday on South Sudan - diplomats

United Nations: The United Nations Security Council will meet on Sunday at the request of the United States to discuss new fighting in South Sudan`s capital Juba, diplomats said.

Violence erupted in Juba on Sunday and forces loyal to Vice President Riek Machar said his residence had been attacked by President Salva Kiir`s troops, raising fears of a slide back into civil war in the five-year-old nation.
