Two S. Sudan politicians barred from travel

South Sudanese authorities have barred two politicians linked to an alleged "coup" bid against President Salva Kiir from travel, a lawyer said Saturday.

Oyai Deng Ajak and Ezekiel Lul Gatkuoth were denied permission to travel to Kenya for visiting their families, the lawyer told Anadolu Agency.

The lawyer, however, cited no reason for the ban.

Deng and Lul, along with Pagan Amum Koech and Majak D'Agoot were released on Friday after Kiir ordered treason charges against them to be dropped.

The four politicians were all arrested last December after Kiir accused his sacked vice president Riek Machar of attempting to stage a coup against his rule.

The conflict in South Sudan has already claimed more than 10,000 lives, with the U.N. estimating that some one million South Sudanese have already been displaced by the violence.
