The area between Mirmir and Leer
The end of December 2002 until the end of March 2003
Violence against civilians. The area along the Bentiu-Leer-Adok Road between Mirmir and Leer saw heavy fighting from the end of December 2002 until the end of March 2003. This fighting was in direct support of the Government of Sudan’s (GoS) designs to complete the allweather road from Rubkona to its garrison at Leer in the south, and ultimately, to its garrison at Adok on the Nile River.
Perpetrator: GoS-allied militia, supported directly by GoS military forces
