JUBA: Unidentified youths shot dead 15 people in South Sudan’s Pibor region, including its commissioner, a senior official said on Wednesday, in the latest flare-up of violence in the country.
Civil war in South Sudan, erupting two years after the country won independence from Sudan and fought largely along ethnic lines between Dinkas and Nuers, caused hundreds of thousands of deaths between 2013 and 2018.
The shooting happened on Tuesday when the commissioner of Boma County in Pibor was returning from a visit to a village.
