The governments of the United States of America and Canada have transported home 40 citizens who took refuge at the UN protection camps in Juba.
The exercise came after the two governments learnt about the presence of their citizens in the camps in July 2016, says Alan Hansom, Canadian Ambassador to South Sudan.
The envoy confirms that the evacuated citizens are currently safe in their countries, Radio Bakhita reports.
South Sudan currently hosts hundreds of US and Canadian citizens who hold dual citizenships.
