Five armed men stole computers, cell phones, and cash from religious sisters at a teachers’ training school in Yambio, South Sudan on December 28, according to the Catholic News Service.

The Sudan Catholic Radio Network reported that one of the sisters was sexually assaulted during the attack.

South Sudan, which has 12.3 million people, is 40% Catholic. The South Sudanese Civil War began in 2013, and the assailants are believed to be associated with a rebel group.
