Violence Continues in South Sudan Despite Peace Deal

At least 29 people have been killed in separate violent clashes. According to the UN Mission in South Sudan, revenge attacks and cattle-related killings remain the biggest insecurity challenges after political violence subsided following the signing of the revitalised peace agreement. Warrap, Jonglei, and Lakes States have been experiencing a series of similar clashes in past years mainly fuelled by revenge attacks, cattle raids, and land grabbing.
