BOR, 10 June 2016 [Gurtong] – At least two people were on Thursday night killed by unknown gunmen in Twic East County of Jonglei State.

The attackers are believed to have gone away with some herds of cattle after killing the two.

Dau Akoi Kurkuch in an interview with Gurtong said the attackers escaped with 10 herds of cattle, adding that the suspects are not yet known.

“The incident happened in Pong-borong of Nyuak payam last night around 1:00 PM. The attackers killed a father and son. The deceased were killed while trying to come out of their grass thatched houses during the incident”, he said.

“The community youth in the area have gone to pursue the attackers and until now there has been no update from the ground”, he stressed.

On 30th May, suspected Murle gunmen abducted two children in the rural area of Mayom village, Ajoung Payam of Twic East County in Jonglei State.

The attackers also raided 70 herds of cattle the same day at the neighbouring village of Wangulei village of Nyuak Payam.
