At least three jets of the Ugandan air force bombed the positions of the General Peter Gatdet Yak in Bor, the capital of Jonglei State.

One of the jets is reported to have been shut down by Gatdet's forces, Eyewitnesses in the area told the South Sudan News Agency.

The bombings come just one day after Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni sent his special forces to Juba, asserting that he acts at the request of the South Sudanese President.
