JUBA, South Sudan : Rebels in South Sudan killed at least 41 people and wounded scores in a gun attack in a remote part of the country’s restive Jonglei state, a regional official said Sunday.
The attack on Sunday morning is believed to have been carried out by rebels loyal to militia leader David Yau Yau helped by youth from his Murle tribe, according to Hussein Maar, the acting governor of Jonglei.
‘‘Preliminary reports we got indicate that 41 people got killed and 63 got wounded, some of them critically,’’ he said. ‘‘Some of the injured are in very bad condition and they will most likely die tonight or later.’’
He said the U.N. Mission in South Sudan airlifted some of the wounded to the state capital, Bor, and to the country’s main hospital in the capital, Juba.
The attackers were armed with automatic weapons and shot indiscriminately. They also stole thousands of cattle, according to Maar.
