South Sudan clashes between army and militia kill 57
At least 57 people have been killed in fighting between government forces and a rebel militia in South Sudan, officials have said.
South Sudan army spokesman Brig Malaak Ayuen said dozens were also wounded in the clashes in the state of Jonglei.
In a separate incident in Jonglei, a Sudanese employee of the UN World Food Programme was killed on Friday by unknown assailants.
This week there have also been clashes in neighbouring Unity state, where a militia led by former SPLA Gen Peter Gadet began an assault on government forces, leaving at least 45 people dead.

Constitutional review: S. Sudan civil society activists decry lack of participation
Coalitions of civil society organisations, gathered at a two-day pre-convention, openly decried the government’s failure to include their views in South Sudan’s interim constitution, now in its draft stage.
Already, civil society entities have planned a national convention with the aim of mapping out strategies to define their role and mandates in society ahead of the southern independence in July.
