South Sudan: David Yau Yau rebels kill more than 100 people in Jonglei State


More than 100 civilians and soldiers were killed on Feb. 8 by anti-government militia fighters and cattle raiders in Southern Sudan’s Jonglei state, according to State Governor Kuol Manyang and military spokesman Philip Aguer.

Cattle herders from the Lou Nuer tribe and an army platoon that was accompanying them were attacked as they travelled from their wet season home to the Sobat River, where they water their cattle during the dry season, the officials said.

The attack was carried out by uniformed fighters of a militia group led by David Yau Yau and members of his Murle tribe who weren’t wearing uniforms, the officials said.

“It was a huge force that attacked, leaving 103 people dead, mostly children and women,” Manyang said by phone today from Bor, the state capital.
