Hundreds Dead in South Sudan

Violence ripped through South Sudan for the second day in a row Tuesday, leaving 400 and 500 people dead and around 800 injured, according to the United Nations, though those numbers have not officially been verified. The government in the capital, Juba, has said it arrested 10 politicians in connection with a failed coup and were searching for the former vice president, who they believe lead the bloody effort. The U.S. has suspended operations at its embassy in South Sudan and is urging citizens to leave the country.
