Last year, Uganda said the number of soldiers in the shadowy group had dwindled to the low hundreds. The rebels are known for vicious attacks against civilians, for abducting and forcing children to become members of the group and for brutally torturing others.
Dozens die in conflict with rebels
JUBA | Fighting in a tense area of south Sudan last weekend killed dozens of people only weeks after about 240 people died in violence in the same area, two officials said Wednesday.
The clashes could destabilize what is soon to be the world’s newest country.
Rebel leader George Athor said his forces fought with the southern military on Sunday in south Sudan’s Jonglei state. The spokesman for the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Army, Col. Philip Aguer, confirmed that the fighting took place.
Mr. Athor said 110 people died in the fighting. Most were southern soldiers, but 12 were civilians, he said. Col. Aguer said about 40 were killed. He didn’t specify if they were soldiers or civilians, but he called Mr. Athor’s toll an exaggeration.
