Ten people have been killed and more than 200 cattle stolen in a raid on Cit-Chok Payam of Cueibet County, Lakes State on Tuesday.

The Commissioner of Tonj East County, Madhol Chol Thuc, says the incident is in retaliation to a series of cattle thefts in January.

The commissioner says the area is swampy and difficult to access, however organized forces have been deployed to secure the region.
