South Sudan’s "Carousel of Violence"

The people fleeing villages in South Sudan due to renewed conflict brought the possessions they could carry and the horror they endured.

Thousands are believed to have been displaced from villages in Leer and Mayendit counties by troops who destroyed food stores and medical clinics, seizing women and burning some people alive, according to eyewitnesses.

“Largely lacking any ideological basis, South Sudan’s conflicts have become a carousel of violence pitting rival elites from different tribes and political groupings against each other as they compete for power,” writes reporter Peter Beaumont.
