United Nations: Unknown assailants killed at least 37 people and wounded 22 others in an attack on a South Sudan village this week, the UN said on Wednesday.
A team from the UN Mission in South Sudan went on Tuesday to the village in Bor county, Jonglei state, following reports of a massacre, UN spokesman Martin Nesirky told a briefing.
Four people who were seriously wounded were taken to the country's capital, Juba, for treatment, Nesirky said. Bor is about 160 kilometres north of Juba.
Jonglei state has seen repeated unrest since South Sudan became independent in July. In mid-August, at least 600 people were killed in two days of clashes between two ethnic groups.
