World Bulletin / News Desk

South Sudan's army and police on Saturday launched a campaign for collecting weapons from citizens in the capital Juba.

Army personnel and policemen were deployed into main streets and residential areas and searched moving cars for weapons, eyewitnesses said.

The army command in Juba had earlier said that it would launch a campaign for collecting weapons from citizens in the capital.

South Sudan has been shaken by violence since last December, when President Salva Kiir accused his sacked vice president Riek Machar of standing behind a failed coup attempt.
