The fight has spread from the capital Juba to South Sudan's oil-rich territories, displacing over 1 million people since it kicked off on Dec. 15 .It has also taken on a vicious ethnic dimension, with Dinka people loyal to Kiir against civilian militias and defected government troops loosely allied to Machar, who is Nuer. Like in Nasir, hospitals across the country are crowded with victims of the war, both willing and unwilling participants in the fighting. Like Kueth, Rebecca Nyaluak had no intention of becoming tangled in this war, but she was targeted in her home and shot by soldiers in the thigh.Despite the worsening situation, even some injured are committed to pressing ahead with the fight.
