South Sudan’s government said it located more than 100 children abducted last month from Ethiopia and that troops from the neighboring country crossed the border to help search for them.

The children are unharmed and being held by raiders from the Murle community in a remote area about 300 kilometers (186 miles) northeast of South Sudan’s capital, Juba, presidential spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny said by phone, citing a report from tribal chiefs.
