Update on South Sudan Crisis
(18th May, 2014)

Background

The five months conflict in South Sudan has engulfed the whole country into a tribal civil war. It started in December 15th, 2013 as political difference within the SPLM ruling part. The government called it an attempted coup but it was actually a political difference that arose over party meetings that sparked the fight.  The President wants to eliminate all his political critics in hope of becoming a full dictator. 

Unfortunately, the fight turned quickly into tribal conflict between Dinka and Nuer the two biggest tribes in the country. In 16th-17th December, 2013 thousands of Nuer were targeted and killed in Juba by the government army and the conflict steadily escalated to other parts of the country where Dinka ethnic group were targeted and killed. Subsequently, more than 20,000 people have died and more than a million displaced from their original villages and towns.
