Journalist Justin Lynch Discusses Deportation From South Sudan

Dec 28, 2016

South Sudan is the world’s newest country. The Central African nation gained independence in 2011, but in December 2013 internal conflicts erupted into civil war. Journalist Justin Lynch, a 25-year-old native of Saratoga Springs, was recently deported from South Sudan after publishing print articles and video on the war.

Lynch tells WAMC’s Southern Adirondack Bureau Chief Lucas Willard about the article he believes prompted authorities to remove him from the country.
