The UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) continues to work with local authorities in the wake of an inter-communal attack in Twic East County in Jonglei State on Sunday.

UNMISS has strongly condemned the attack by unidentified assailants on cattle camps.

Cattle raids and inter-communal attacks and counter attacks continue to be a major security challenge for the government of South Sudan since the country became independent from Sudan in 2011.

To find out more about the latest attack, UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha called Ariane Quentier, Spokesperson for UNMISS in South Sudan.
