BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinians from Jenin have been unable to return from a business trip in South Sudan following widespread clashes in Juba, the country's capital.

Muhammad Abu Ubeid and colleague Husam Abu Harthiyya arrived in Juba two weeks ago on behalf of the Canadian company Linktek Corporation, a mutual friend Nael Daqqa told Ma'an.

They were due to arrive back in Palestine on Wednesday but could not travel due to an attempted coup, and are unable to leave their hotel in Juba due to a government imposed curfew.

At least 60 foreign nationals were due to be moved to Uganda late Tuesday under the auspices of the UN, but the mission was postponed as they could not obtain permission from the South Sudanese government.

The families of Abu Ubeid and Abu Harthiyya have appealed to Palestinian officials to intervene and help them return safely.
