NAIROBI: South Sudanese President Salva Kiir declared a state of emergency in two states on Wednesday, the government said on its official Twitter account.

"President Kiir has declared a state of emergency for Unity and Jonglei states #SouthSudan," the statement on the @RepSouthSudan Twitter handle said.

The two regions have been the focus of fighting against rebel forces loyal to the former vice president that has killed more that 1,000 people.
