Arua: Two Sudanese Refugees Killed In World Cup Clash 

Police in Arua district is investigating a case of murder in which two refugees of the Dinka tribe of South Sudan were killed in a clash.

The fight which turned tribal, was between Nuer and Dinka at Tika4 camp in Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement in Arua district.

According to the West Nile Police Spokesperson Josephine Angucia, the clash started from a quarrel between the two groups while watching a World Cup match in a trading center at Tika4 Camp.

The deceased were identified by police as Thon Majok, a Dinka attached to Tika4, Block A cluster; and Mabok Simak, another Dinka.

These, police says, picked up a fight which prompted the Neur group to retaliate.

Police added that the Nuer group attacked the Dinka with machetes and other sharp objects, killing the two in cold blood on Sunday night.

Angucia says Police has since deployed heavily in the camps to stop reoccurrence of the clash between the two tribal groups.

It has also been established that the Office of the Prime Minister has embarked on the process of separating the two groups into two different camps to avoid more bloodshed.
