Soldiers have brought scores of bodies to a hospital in South Sudan's capital after gunfire erupted throughout Juba Friday evening, a doctor at the hospital said Saturday, as panicked residents worried of a return to civil war.Another doctor there estimated 110 bodies, both soldiers and civilians.Gunfire continued into Friday night outside a U.N. base in Juba sheltering more than 25,000 people.One death inside the U.N. base was reported, spokeswoman Shantal Persaud said, and at least 1,000 civilians had crowded into the U.N. staff housing and office areas seeking shelter.That shooting, which killed five soldiers, was similar to the skirmish between soldiers in Juba in December 2013 that led to the civil war in which tens of thousands of people were killed.
