  • Gambella, host to more than a quarter-million Nuer refugees, has seen a cascade of retaliatory violence between the Nuer and Anuak ethnic communities since the fall.
  • The Nuer refugees have fled from South Sudan as civil war persists, which has seen weapons transported to Ethiopia and further exacerbated the Gambella conflict.
