JUBA: At least 58 people were killed and more than 100 others wounded in Thursday’s attack on a U.N. base in South Sudan sheltering thousands of displaced civilians, a U.N. official said Friday.

“Forty-eight bodies, including children, women, men, have been recovered from inside the base. The bodies of 10 attackers have been found outside the base. The total death toll is 58, but that could increase as over 100 people were wounded, some of them very seriously,” the top U.N. official in the country, Toby Lanzer, told AFP.
