Violence in South Sudan must end, the acting US ambassador to South Sudan has said in his Easter Message to the citizens and leaders of the world’s youngest nation.
Around 28 civilians died during the attack on a remote herders camp, state information minister Bol Dhel told South Sudanese media.
‘Gunshots don’t know the difference between a Dinka and Nuer person. They kill whatever is in their path. You’re alive and so is your family. Cross to the other side and settle this debt when all this is over and you are able to.’
Ambassadors of the Troika (U.S., UK, and Norway), Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the EU are profoundly concerned by the reports of the killing and injuring of civilians in Bentiu, Bor, and elsewhere, and condemn these atrocities in the strongest terms.
