CWN Editor's Note: The Diocese of Tombura-Yambio called for state protection of Catholic institutions following the incidents. South Sudan, a nation of 10.6 million (map), is 62% Christian (and 42% Catholic), 31% ethnic religionist, and 6% Muslim, and gained independence from largely Muslim Sudan in 2011. The nation emerged last year from a seven-year civil war.
