Juba, Mar 29 (Prensa Latina) A total of 14 civilians were killed and seven wounded in the southern Sudanese province of Eastern Equatoria in an attack perpetrated by unidentified gunmen, a government source reported on Monday.
The territory's press secretary, Aliandro Lotok, said that following the action in Budi county, police authorities launched a raid in the area to catch the perpetrators.

The attack on civilians comes a week after five people were killed by unidentified elements in Lowaereng locality, Kapoeta South County.

South Sudan, considered the world's youngest country when it broke away in 2011 from neighboring Sudan, is hit by increasing violence triggered by armed group actions against individuals and inter-communal clashes.

This African country, where in 2018 the government and armed groups signed a historic peace agreement, experienced a bloody war from 2013 to 2018, which left thousands dead and the forced displacement of nearly four million civilians, according to data from the United Nations Refugee Agency. - Prensa Latina
