Koko Alan, a Murle victim of Lou-Nuer cattle raiding

Koko Alan, a Murle victim of Lou-Nuer cattle raiding

Koko Alan, left, ruined after losing 500 cows, stands with other villagers of South Sudan's troubled Jonglei state on Jan. 12, 2012 in Pibor. An estimated 60,000 people have been affected by recent fighting in the worst outbreak of violence since South Sudan gained independence in July 2011. An 8,000-strong militia army from the Lou-Nuer tribe recently marched on Pibor, home to the rival Murle people, whom they blame for abductions and cattle raiding.
