(EthioTime) South Sudanese refugees reported to have killed Ethiopians who were working at Jawi refugee camp in Gambella. Death toll was reported to be 14 people, however, sources from Ethiopian authorities claimed only 10. Ethiopian government remained silent about the brutal killing that some people are still nowhere to be found either alive or dead. Meanwhile, the exact status of the recently hijacked people by South Sudanese armed group from the region is also not yet revealed.
Ethnic Nuer who are reported to have committed the brutal killing were elicited by a car accident that killed two refugee children in the camp on Friday mid-day. Action Contre la Faim (ACF), a foreign Non-Governmental Organization operating in the refugee camp owns the vehicle.
The killing that solely targeted Ethiopians in the refugee camp turned Gambella, one of Ethiopia’s regional administration, the most fragile place in the area.
Over 48 thousand ethnic Nuer refugees are hosted in Jawi Camp, according the UN. Ethiopia is a host for hundreds of thousands refugees from the world’s newest country as they escape the war-torn between two superior political factions.
