Bentiu

(Late) March, 2000
The combined SPLA/SPDF forces forced the GoS/Paulino Matiep militia troops back into the town of Bentiu. This led to GoS/Paulino Matiep alleged killings (again) of suspected SPLM/A/SPDF supporters in Bentiu in retaliation. The revenge attacks killed at least 160 people.

Perpetrator: SPLA/SPDF, GoS/Paulino Matiep militia
