Two South Sudanese refugees have died in a fight that erupted in a video hall, where they were watching a World Cup football match.
The incident, according to the police, occurred during a game between Brazil Vs Switzerland on Sunday night at Tika Zone in Rhino Camp Settlement.
Arua Regional Police Commander, Mr Jonathan Musinguzi said the fight was between a group of Nuer tribesmen who attacked members of the Dinka tribe.
Mr Musinguzi identified the two Dinka tribesmen who died in the fight Nabuk Jimak, 50, and Son Majok, 18.
“Why should you kill just because of football? We will investigate why the matches were organised to be watched in the camps because these people still have tribal grudges. But we shall ensure that peace prevails in the camps,” said Arua Brigade Commander, Col. Bernard Tuhame
The fight that continued until Monday morning forced to some refugees to flee to nearby bushes.
Meanwhile in China, Two men committed suicide separately after allegedly losing all their money which they bet on the world cup match between Germany and Mexico.
The video was shared by one, Mokwuelum Ifeanyi, a Nigerian who lives in Guangzhou, China. While one jumped from a building, the other jumped from a bridge.
