A family return back to the town of Pibor after spending days in the bush fleeing the violence. South Sudan, a newly independent country barely six months old, has recently exploded in violence centered on cattle rustling. Hundreds of people, possibly thousands, were massacred in the Pibor area. United Nations peacekeepers and government forces have been deployed to establish a buffer zone between waring groups but the killing continues. Many wounded people in the Pibor area have trudged miles through the bush to get help. A long line of corpses stretches for miles from nearby the United Nations compound in Pibor deep into the swamps. The population of Pibor is slowly returning back to the town after fleeing the violence.
