Several other people were reportedly left with injuries following the highway attack.

“The gunmen opened fire on our car, killing one South Sudanese and one Ugandan,” said a survivor.

Some of the photos shared on social media showed bloody bodies and a stained vehicle.

Bor-Juba highway is popular with traders between towns and residents returning to Jonglei state after fleeing the area in the aftermath of the December 2013 outbreak of war.

The gunmen, eyewitnesses said, fired several bullets on the vehicle carrying passengers.

Those killed included a Ugandan, South Sudanese, but the rest were not easily identified.

    OMG, it is unfortunate to heard such road attack. Until when are we going to have known gunmen attacking? rather than the unknown gunmen?

    I’m advising if possible there must be a fixed time to travel from Juba-Bor, Bor- Juba. Juba-Nimule and Nimule- juba. Juba-Yei and Yei-Juba. Juba-Terekeka and Terekeka-Juba. Again They should also to be travelling in a convoy. May their souls RIP
