This rumour is confirmed true and is of high priority – here's why:
More than twenty (20) South Sudanese refugees have been killed in days of intra-clan fighting in Uganda’s Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement. The fighting purportedly broke out over a woman and intensified over the next few days until police were deployed to calm the situation. An eyewitness in the settlement said that the young men belonging to two clans used machetes, sticks, and other objects to attack each other. Over 50 suspects have been arrested and the injured are receiving treatment.
