South Sudan's military said Friday 35 people were killed in fighting at its main barracks this week over delayed salaries, raising the toll from five, and sporadic shooting was heard in the capital Juba.The flare-up Wednesday night at Giada barracks, where clashes December spilled over into Juba and beyond, shows the tensions that persist in Africa's newest nation, which came close to civil war before an often-violated Jan. 23 cease-fire.The fighting in Giada involved a specialist force known as the commandos, the military said.South Sudan's government has been at war with rebel groups since Dec. 15, when a clash between troops loyal to President Salva Kiir and those backing sacked Vice President Riek Machar snowballed into full-scale fighting across the country.
