Aid group: Clashes show ‘extreme violence’
JUBA | Thousands of South Sudanese civilians fled a wave of ethnic clashes and face the danger of being attacked in hiding in what an international medical group on Tuesday called a pattern of “extreme violence.”
Doctors Without Borders said Tuesday that wounded patients are still coming to their hospital with gunshot and stab wounds, weeks after the last attack in Jonglei state, a remote and volatile region of the new nation of South Sudan.
The group said it had seen dozens of gunshot and stab wounds at one hospital and that 25 of its staff of 156 are missing. The group said one of its clinics in the village of Lekwongole was largely destroyed.
The U.N. has said that more than 120,000 people need humanitarian aid after a wave of clashes between the Lou Nuer and Murle communities in the remote and volatile region.
No reliable death toll for the clashes has yet been established. Officials have given tolls ranging from 160 to more than 3,000.
