Two bouts of violence in South Sudan kill 12
Juba: Officials in South Sudan say two separate bouts of violence have killed 12 people.
Taban Deng Gai, the governor of Unity state, on Tuesday said that cattle rustlers attacked a village on Monday, killing 11 people and wounding eight. Gai said more than 50 cattles were stolen.
South Sudan has a long history of cattle-raiding, attacks that have grown in frequency and deadliness since South Sudan declared its independence from Sudan in 2011.
In another part of the country, gunmen abducted seven children and a woman from a village in Jonglei state over the weekend. One child was killed.
Barnaba Okony Gilo, a government official from the region, said witnesses said the gunmen wore South Sudanese military uniforms. The military said the attack was carried out by criminals wearing military uniforms.
