Official: 41 killed in South Sudan
JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — Rebels in South Sudan killed at least 41 people and wounded scores in a gun attack in a remote part of the country’s restive Jonglei state, a regional official said Sunday.
The attack on Sunday morning is believed to have been carried out by rebels loyal to militia leader David Yau Yau helped by youths from his Murle tribe, according to Hussein Maar, the acting governor of Jonglei.
The attackers were armed with automatic weapons and shot indiscriminately. They also stole thousands of cattle, according to Maar.
