At least three cattle traders have been killed and several others wounded in an ambush along Juba-Bor road Thursday morning.

The coordinator of the Pibor Administrative Area in Juba, John Kojo, says the cattle traders came from the Pibor Administrative Area.

He points out that the traders were attacked at Jabur area along Juba-Bor road at around 6:00 AM.
