Background

In early December, over 5000 Lou Nuer youth from Northern Jonglei State were reported to have mobilised heading towards Pibor County to conduct a revenge attack against Murle. The two sides have engaged in multiple clashes over 2011, the most recent being in August where over 600 were killed in Uror county, and in June in Pibor where over 400 were estimated to have been killed.
