South Sudan says Sudan has launched attacks inside its territory, killing at least five people. Military spokesman Col. Philip Aguer said Thursday that the attacks came on Christmas Day, killing three women and two children. Aguer said Antonov warplanes bombed the village of Werguet, in Northern Bahr el Ghazal state, while ground forces working with "militiamen" attacked nearby Kiir Adem. Aguer said the areas are part of South Sudan. The areas are near the Kiir River, the southern boundary of a 14-mile strip of territory claimed by both countries. Sudan and South Sudan reached an oil and border security deal in August that called for the area to be demilitarized until its final status could be determined. A Sudanese government spokesman couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Well, it says it isn't fatal if treated quickly. So... what are they treating this with? They must have a decent idea of what it is.

In the "All Africa" article linked on the first page - the article mentions viral hepatitis as well. Maybe a combo of both??? Both can hit the liver hard.
I have no idea about how diseases work.
Just a thought maybe both diseases contaminated a water supply????
Just a shot in the dark....

sounds like a virus that may cause biliary obstruction somehow - then
bile would increase, not be recirculated/excreted via the enterohepatic circulation -
and the skin would turn yellow and eyes may turn green (prob. yellow first).
The pancreas and/or liver would be the viral targets.

Let's hope it remains contained to the area ... unless it's already too late and the condition has 'flown' so to speak.
Ishaq Ahmed Yaqoub, minister of health of West Darfur, announced the outbreak of hepatitis D in the state, when speaking to Radio Dabanga on Wednesday, 12 December.
At the same time, the minister assured that no new cases of yellow fever have been reported in the localities of El-Geneina, Azum and Habila.
