At least 60 people have been killed and dozens wounded in battles over livestock in South Sudan's northern state of Western Lakes, local officials said Friday – the latest in a series of attacks between rival communities. Battles over cattle between rival factions of the Dinka people, the Rup and Pakam clans, broke out on Dec. 6 in the central area of Western Lakes, some 250 kilometers northwest of the capital Juba. Women are commonly raped and children abducted, adding fuel to revenge attacks.
