jonglei update

It has been a week now and things have gone really quiet. A few days after the incident in Bor, leaders from Murle, Dinka along with government officials including Riak Machar met in Bor. We don’t know the results from that meeting or what actions are to take place next. There are reports that military units from the JIU (Joint Integrated Units) have been deployed to provide some security. Not sure if this is accurate or not.

So at least for the moment it seems that some calm has come back to the place. I just hope the two groups are actively discussing and looking for a way forward that doesn’t involve more killing.
