Juba, South Sudan: Protests against Archbishop-Elect Turn Violent

On Sunday afternoon, a group of Catholic youth attached to St. Theresa’s Cathedral Parish, Kator, of South Sudan’s Juba Archdiocese, identified as members from the dominant ethnic group of the Archdiocese, the Bari, stormed the residence of priests at the parish, beating up and injuring one cleric while two managed to flee.

“The priest was attacked in his house and dragged to the Cathedral church before he was rescued by security personnel,” a source in Juba told ACI Africa Tuesday, March 10 referencing the attack on Fr. Nicholas Kiri and added, “The attackers are a group of youth from Kator parish.”
