A new report estimates that South Sudan’s civil war has caused nearly 400,000 “excess deaths” since fighting erupted in late 2013.



The report funded by the U.S. State Department and issued by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine estimates that violence caused about half of those 382,900 deaths.

For years the toll in South Sudan’s civil war has been uncertain, with estimates in the tens of thousands.

The report, based on statistical modeling and not peer-reviewed, comes weeks after the warring sides signed a “final final” peace deal to end the conflict. The United States and others have expressed skepticism that this new deal will hold.

The conflict also has sent more than 2 million people fleeing in Africa’s largest refugee crisis since the 1994 Rwandan genocide.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.

Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.

“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”

It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”

The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
