South Sudanese hip hop star mugged by police in Juba

In a bit of weird and unfortunate news, Emmanuel Jal, a Toronto-based South Sudanese Hip Hop artist who was in his native country`s capital to hold a concert promoting peace was mugged and robbed by 5 police officers on Sunday night.

Jal, whose ``We Want Peace-Reloaded`` video feature appearances by celebrities like Jimmy Carter, George Clooney, and Ringo Star, was in South Sudan preparing a concert for International Peace Day on September 21. He was mugged and robbed by 5 police and national security officials in what appears to be a random attack unrelated to his political activities.

Jal is posting updates on his twitter account.
