JUBA - The airport in Juba has reopened on Wednesay while the ceasfire holds strong.

South Sudanese residents say they are too traumatised to return to their homes following days of heavy fighting.

This is despite a ceasefire called on Monday night.

Some are living in makeshift shelters, while others have taken refuge in churches.

The renewed violence raises fears a one-year-old peace deal may collapse.

The peace deal had been signed in an effort to end a two-year civil war between supporters of President Salva Kiir and Vice President Riek Machar.
