According to Ezzo county commissioner, Raphael Tamania one man was killed and another seriously wounded when the Ugandan rebel group Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) attacked Ezzo county.

Tamania said, “A group of LRA rebels crossed the Southern Sudan border from the Democratic Republic of Congo on Tuesday and attacked villages and a Congolese refugee camp three miles away from the border. They looted food
and medical drugs.”

He said that Southern Sudan troops later confronted the rebels who escaped back to Democratic republic of Congo. According to him more troops have been deployed to guard people against the rebels.

Lord’s Resistance Army rebels led by Joseph Kony have for over 20 years killed innocent civilians in Uganda, Southern Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
