July 17, 2014 (JUBA) – At least 18 people were killed and six others wounded after unknown gunmen attacked a village north of South Sudan’s Jonglei state on Wednesday, an official said.

"The attack occurred in Pigi county’s Cuei village between rivers. 18 civilians are known to have lost their lives and six others are wounded,” commissioner Dau Gueny told Sudan Tribune by phone

“All the cattle are taken by the attackers who we believe are rebels coming Lou Nuer,” he added in reference to Jonglei’s territory inhabited by members of the Nuer ethnic group.

Pigi is separated by Nile River from Malakal, the Upper Nile state capital.

Sudan Tribune was unable to confirm who carried out the gruesome attack.

    This is why we have told pro-Riek Machar supporters that, they will never win the rebellion. in the first defection, Riek Machar and Dr. Lam Akol were seem to be the leaders of defection movement but later Riek Machar appointed another Nuer man to be his deputy and this was the reason Dr. Lam Akol left them and went direct to Sudan’s government instead of nepotism movement. He will not win

    Looting is not something that would surprise anyone who knew the culture of Nuers people why because this is a nature for them. The Riek Movement is targeting Dinka, Shuill community and many more others tribes too. I felt sorry for people like Son of late Dr. John Garang Mabior, Dhieu Mathok and David Dau Aturjong for joining the rebel which against his own people. The target Dinka in Pigi county
