Interview: ethnic tensions, cattle raiding in Sudan

As Southern Sudan prepares for independence it faces many challenges, including ethnic tensions that often lead to violence. During a research visit to Boma, Jonglei State, MRG found that competition for scarce resources is often at the root of incidents such as cattle raiding attacks. 

In this interview, Boma community leader Paul Oleyo Longony speaks about tensions between ethnic groups - and what can be done about it.

The interview accompanies MRG's briefing, Southern Sudan: The Role of Minority Rights in Building a New Nation
