VISA POUR L’IMAGE (PERPIGNAN, FRANCE) – Sept. 2016
26 february 2016. Malakal : Akki Adduok, a displaced woman residing in the Protection of Civilians (PoC) site in Malakal, South Sudan, sits in the spot where there used to be her shelter on February 26, 2016. Fighting between elements of the Shilluk and Dinka communities erupted in the Malakal PoC on February 17 and continued on February 18. UN reports confirm that armed men in Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) uniforms entered the UN camp and fired on civilians, looting and burning tents. At least 18 people were killed and more than 90 wounded. After the clashes, Dinka families (approximately 4,000 people) fled outside the PoC and sought refugee into Malakal town, while about 26,000 Nuer and Shilluk IDPs, mostly women and children, sought refugee in the former PoC.
