However, according to a statement released by Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, the rebel military spokesperson, “Government troops attacked and overran UNMISS Camp in Bor.”
“Kiir’s forces forced their way through the main UNMISS gate, indiscriminately opened intense and sustained fire on civilians, killing 200 people mostly women and children and wounded 300 others,” continues the statement.
Machar’s spokesperson, James Gatdet Dak, told us last evening that the number of the dead was in hundreds but could not confirm the actual figure.
All Bor sources said the attackers were civilians but rebels insist they were government troops “dressed in civilian clothes”.
“The aggression shown by Salva Kiir in making baseless accusations against the UNMISS is the same his troops have implemented in Bor,” points out Machar in a social media message.
He added: “We condemn in the strongest terms the killing of innocent IDPs sheltered in Bor by the government forces dressed as civilians in disguise.”
While it is widely believed that the attackers were angry with Nuer IDPs for celebrating the fall of Bentiu town recently, others say it was because National Security had just intercepted UN ferries carrying arms.
