Reportage: South Sudan: Birth of a Nation: South Sudan

Members of the pastoralist Toposa tribe in a family compound. Drought has caused the pastoralists to travel great distances in order to find grazing areas and water for their livestock. The village lies near a former SPLA strong hold and logistics base which was heavily mined during the country's long civil war. The site is widely used for grazing and transit of animals by local residents and is much needed by the community.Lomongole, South Sudan.Photo © J.B. Russell
