Mapping Violence in South Sudan

Posted by Amanda Hsiao on September 25, 2009

Over 2,000 people have been killed and 250,000 displaced in a wave of violent clashes in South Sudan this year. Following Monday’s attack in the village of Duk Padiet village in Jonglei that left at least 76 dead, U.N. Secretary General Bank Ki-moon issued a statement strongly condemning the violence.

Reuters recently published a timeline of the major attacks so far. We thought it would be useful to plot these details on a map to draw a picture of the increasing violence in the South as the clock ticks toward national elections next year and the self-determination referendum in 2011. Watch for updates to this map in the coming months.
