One man was killed and another seriously wounded when the Ugandan rebel group Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) attacked Tuesday Ezzo County in Western Equatoria State. The Commissioner of Ezzo County Raphael Tamania said armed LRA rebels crossed the Southern Sudan border from the Democratic Republic of Congo and attacked Congolese refugee camp three miles away from the town.

He added that the rebels looted food and escaped when the organized forces in Ezzo tried to confront the rebels.

However, the Commissioner said more security forces are expected to be deployed in Ezzo County and the refugee camp.
