This rumour is confirmed true and is of high priority – here's why:
According to the reports the conflict broke out on Tuesday and continued until Wednesday, the information minister of Torit state in his press statement. The fighting broke out over control of a source of water and land for grazing, according to John Atari. Violent land dispute and cattle theft among herders and farmers is not uncommon in civil war-torn South Sudan; civilians are often heavily armed. Just last week, 17 people died fighting for pastureland in the same state, Atari said. A local administrator in Torit reported 18 dead on Sunday.
