More than 38 people killed in north-western South Sudan ethnic clashed

More than 38 people have been killed when two tribes clashed in north-western South Sudan.

The Apuk and Aguok clans clashed over border disputes, grazing land and water points in President Salva Kiir’s home town of Gogrial, Agoth Mel, the deputy governor of Gogrial state, in which the town is located, told DPA.

About 35 others were injured during the fighting and received treatment in nearby hospitals, according Mel.

South Sudan was plunged into a military conflict when a split between Kiir and his former deputy Riek Machar escalated in December 2013.
