Reuters: South Sudan sends in troops to stem tribal violence.  South Sudan's army said on Wednesday it was sending hundreds of troops to the scenes of recent tribal massacres to guard civilians and try to stem an escalation of ethnic killings in the oil-producing region.
Sudan's underdeveloped south, particularly its marshy Jonglei state, has been hit by a wave of attacks by heavily armed tribal groups, who have shocked southerners by targeting villages and killing large numbers of women and children. More than 100 people were killed when a large group of Lou Nuer tribesmen attacked the village of Duk Padiet, home to a rival Dinka group, on Sunday morning while many of the villagers were in church, officials told Reuters.

He called for a new era of engagement among nations to address violence and work for peace, in Haiti, East Timor, the Middle East, Congo, and Sudan.
