The bishop of Yei, South Sudan’s second-largest city, told the Fides news agency that people there are at risk of being massacred by the president’s forces in the nation’s ethnic civil war.
“Over 100,000 people live in fear and uncertainty and are unable to
leave the city,” Bishop Erkolano Lodu Tombe told the Fides news agency.
“There is no shooting in Yei at the moment, but the population lives in
constant fear of a new wave of violence and murders.”
