25 March 2009 - (Panyijiar) - Three people were killed and two others wounded in Panyijiar county in Unity state.
Speaking to Sudan Radio Service, Panyijiar county commissioner, Gatkoi Tear said that the dead were victims of revenge killings.
[Gatkoi Tear]: “The problem happened after a person was killed and his relatives then took revenge and killed one person and wounded two people. In another incident, a policeman and a civilian were killed. The Government of southern Sudan should create laws that will help civilians know that if one commits a crime, they will be answerable to the law.”
He said revenge attacks are very common because there are no laws prohibiting such acts.
