JUBA---The UN s top aid official
in South Sudan watched help-
lessly as armed men in uniform
stole a car from an aid group.
Thugs took $50,000 of goods
from Mercy Corps. Tons of food
have been stolen, and $500,000
taken from a bank.
With renewed warfare reverber-
ating throughout the world s
newest country, wholesale looting
of vehicles, equipment and supplies
belonging to aid groups is crippling
humanitarians abilities to help.
There is much work to do: Even
before the fighting broke out last
month, the people of South Sudan,
one of the world s poorest coun-
tries, were suffering from dismal
health care and little education.
Now it s much worse and they
MUCUCHIES---In Venezuela, a rare breed of shaggy
sheepdog has come to symbolise the patriotic legacy
of the late Hugo Chavez.
Venezuela s former president rescued the mucuchies,
named for this Andean town where the breed originated
400 years ago, from near-extinction in 2008 by pro-
viding funding to breed the remaining 23 purebreds,
and he used to delight in recalling how one early tail-
wagger called Nevado fought at the side of his idol,
19th century independence hero Simon Bolivar.
"He wanted the dog to be known around the world
as a symbol of our country," said Walter Demendoza,
president of the Nevado Foundation, which works to
rescue the breed.
Chavez died from cancer last March, but interest
in the dog in Latin America surged after ally Argentine
president Cristina Fernandez reappeared in public in
November after brain surgery doting on a fluffy, white
puppy given to her by Chavez s brother.
Overnight the dog Simon, named after Bolivar,
became a social media sensation. This month, Chavez s
successor, Nicolas Maduro, named a government cam-
paign to rescue street dogs in honor of the The Lib-
erator s best friend.
Thanks to Chavez s efforts, there are now almost
200 purebred mucuchies, and the dog is on its way
to joining the group of 343 breeds officially recognized
by the World Canine Organization.
The largest contingent, including the parents of
Argentina s new "first dog," live in the high-altitude
moorlands known as paramos, at the extreme northern
edge of the Andes in Venezuela.
It was here in the village of Mucuchies, 9,843 feet
above sea level, that the greatest canine encounter in
Venezuela s history took place.
Legend has it that in 1813 Bolivar s army was
approaching a farm when the independence fighters
were stopped in their tracks by a giant, barking guard
dog. Weapons drawn, the rebels were about to kill the
dog when Bolivar, marveling at its beauty and bravery,
ordered them to back down. (AP)

people have been killed and hundreds
of thousands displaced by a month of
fighting in South Sudan between fac-
tions of the military as well as ethnic
