China evacuated some of its embassy staff and some citizens trapped in the recent fighting in South Sudanese capital, Juba. Major General Su Guanghui, acting director of the Peacekeeping Affairs Office of the Chinese Defence Ministry, and his delegation who arrived in Juba evacuated 17 embassy staff, 12 members of the Chinese medical team and 20 people from Chinese companies. The relieved team from the conflict-hit country aboard a special plane organized by the authorities in Beijing was received by Chinese Ambassador to Uganda Zhao Yali at Entebbe International Airport, about 40 kilometers south of the capital Kampala, on their way home.
