Security is being reinforced in a town in South Sudan that was attacked by a group of 6000 armed men.

Pibor town, which is home to the Murle ethnic group was targeted over the weekend by men from the Lou Nuer tribe as part of ongoing tribal rivalries.

The South Sudanese army has sent reinforcements as has the United Nations.
