JUBA, 1 October 2009 (IRIN) - A
month before the recent attack in Jonglei State that left scores dead,
Daniel Dau had moved his family from Duk to Twich East County, about 100km
away, believing they would be safer there.
But he was wrong. On 20 September, Duk
Padiet village in Twich was attacked and at least 167 people killed, according
to Jonglei State statistics.
The dead included Dau's uncle. "[He
was] the only surviving member of his family," said David Dau, Daniel's
son and head of the Agency for Independent Media, a media development organization
in Southern Sudan.
