SOUTH SUDAN

Security

The reporting period was marked by a series of apparently coordinated armed attacks on the Juba - Torit road, Juba - Nimule road and in the villages of Gumbo and Rejaf some five and eight kilometres away from the centre of Juba. At least 40 people were killed and many others were injured. The attacks prompted UNHCR to temporarily call off repatriation of southern Sudanese refugees from Uganda. The Ugandan Government also temporarily closed its border with Sudan because of the killings, accusing the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) of being responsible for them.
