The state information minister, Simon Tueny Mabor was quoted saying armed men believed to be from neighbouring Western Lakes state attacked herders along Yirol-Aluakluak road on Wednesday and made off with nine animals.

A separate incident, he said, occurred last week when an armed group attacked a cattle camp in Eastern Lakes state, killing two people.

In August, two people were killed and 15 heads of cattle raided in Ger County of Eastern Lakes State.

Since South Sudan’s independence in July 2011, cattle raids have claimed several lives and several herds of cattle have also been lost.
