U.S. Sanctions South Sudan Chiefs After Kiir Critics Killed

The U.S. Treasury has imposed sanctions on five South Sudanese nationals for their alleged role in the abduction and execution of two prominent critics of President Salva Kiir's government nearly three years ago. Human Rights lawyer Dong Samuel Luak and opposition member Aggrey Idri, were taken while in Nairobi and killed in Juba on January 30, 2017.

Dong Samuel Luak and Aggrey Idri disappeared in Kenya. No one knows their current whereabouts. The UN has issued a report saying the opposition politicians were abducted and likely killed by South Sudan’s National Security Service.
