"We have confirmed 22 people dead, including women and children," Terekeka state minister, David Laku Jombe told dpa.

About 17 others were injured when the assailants from Eastern Lakes State stole about 90 cattle under gunfire in Tidilo village, he added.

According to the official, four cattle raiders were among those killed.

The attack against the Mundari tribe is believed to have been carried out by the Dinka tribe, who constitute the largest population.

South Sudan has been embroiled in conflict since December 2013 when President Salva Kiir accused Riek Machar, his former deputy of a coup attempt. Over 3 million people have since been displaced.

    Cattle keepers are just thieves, murderes, rapists and all that negative you can think about. Cattle thieves are about to envoke the wrath of the regime alley in to the south, following the killing of a UPDF soldier over the weekend in Moyo district.....

        Kuch aka koryom2,
        Bullshit, no single cow in SS gives more than 3liters/day. The emaciated jienge cows have hardly any milk and so even jienge kids have nothing to drink except run to Juba for powdered milk. Your cows have no economic value, just like worthless pictures hung on walls except to marry countless nyanjienges. Shut up. Case closed. Next!

    Where is the government? Where is the national army/police? Where are you Mr.President? Are you really in control of the country or are you sleeping daily in your blood stained J1? Please, wake up and take charge of the country. Innocent people are dying daily and no protection. South Sudan is losing the original meaning of a functioning country like any stable country in the region.
