Tuesday, 03 Mar 2015 06:40 AM

South Sudanese police officers protesting a delay in payment of their salaries clashed with soldiers trying to control the demonstration in the country's northwest, leaving four people dead, a regional official said.

Two police officers and two soldiers were killed in the fighting in Wau, the capital of Western Bahr el-Ghazal state, Deputy Governor Joseph Zakaria Garang said by phone from the city. Speaking from the national capital, Juba, army spokesman Philip Aguer said troops were called to rectify the "breakdown of discipline within the police force."

The violence was sparked during a demonstration by officers who haven't received their salaries for January and February, police spokesman James Monday Enoka said by phone from Juba.
