The fighting, the latest in a series of attacks between rival communities, occurred in Bor South in central Jonglei State, some 200 kilometres north of the capital Juba.
Conflict erupted over grazing land ownership and the naming of a village.
Rival pastoralists and farming communities in South Sudan have a long and bloody history of tit-for-tat attacks. The fighting has worsened amidst the society breakdown during the four-year civil war which began in December 2013.
