The conflict that began in Libya on 17 February 2011 with a popular revolt against Gaddafi’s regime has triggered a mass exodus of the civilian population into neighbouring countries. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled, mainly into Tunisia and Egypt, as a result of attacks by Gaddafi’s forces on civilian populations, the rebellion and NATO bombings. Migrant workers and refugees from Sub-Saharan Africa have been particular targets of violence.
Le conflit déclenché en Libye, le 17 février 2011, par la révolte populaire contre le régime du Colonel Khadafi, a provoqué un exode massif dans les pays limitrophes. Les violences perpétrées par les forces de Khadafi contre les populations civiles, la guerre entreprise par les rebelles pour renverser le régime, ainsi que les bombardements de l’OTAN, ont contraint des centaines de milliers de personnes à fuir le pays. A cela s’ajoute des exactions spécifiques perpétrées à l’encontre des immigrés originaires d’Afrique sub-saharienne et qui les ont poussé à s’enfuir.
Situation générale en novembre 2007
The security situation in the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA)-affected areas east of the Nile River deteriorated over the reporting period. Clashes between the LRA and the Uganda People's Defence Force (UPDF) were reported in a number of locations south and south-east of Juba in Central Equatoria. Two ambushes targeting civilian vehicles were also reported on the Juba-Nimule road.
The security situation in Equatoria remained volatile with several attacks and cases of abduction by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). On 7 March, a truck belonging to a national NGO called South Sudan Community Association (SSCA) was ambushed by the LRA along the Yei-Maridi road, near Tore, 43 miles from Yei. During the incident, one SSCA staff member was killed while two others were seriously injured.
The general security situation in Central, Eastern and Western Equatoria States is stable but tense due to alleged Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) movements and activities in the Maridi areas in Western Equatoria State as well as along the Juba-Torit road in Central and Eastern Equatoria States. The Juba-Rokon road is now safe as the Dinka herdsmen, who were considered a security risk on that road, have now moved away from the Mundri area in Western Equatoria on their way back to Bor.
The situation is tense on the Juba-Torit and Juba-Nimule roads and in areas surrounding Gumbo and Rejaf where the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has been launching attacks almost on a daily basis, looting food, cows, goats and property. Confirmed police sources indicate that the LRA has its base at Lungi Hill, approximately four kilometres south of Gumbo. There has been no positive response from the security forces based in the Gumbo vicinity to protect the civilian population.
