Southern Sudan: MSF Treats People Caught in Armed Clashes
April 26, 2011
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams in the southern Sudan towns of Bentiu and Malakal have treated over 30 people with gunshot wounds in recent days. MSF’s medical intervention is alongside and in coordination with southern Sudan's Ministry of Health.
The wounded civilians were caught in the crossfire during clashes between the ruling party of southern Sudan and opposing groups in and around Mankien, in Unity State, and Kaldak, in neighboring Upper Nile State—located in the northern region of southern Sudan.
