#AceWorldNews – SOUTH SUDAN – May 08 – Warring forces on both sides of South Sudan’s brutal civil war have likely carried out crimes against humanity, the UN said Thursday.
The UN peacekeeping mission in the country also warned in a new report of “countless” gross violations of human rights.
It said the crimes include “extra-judicial killings, enforced disappearances, rape, the direct targeting of civilians, often along ethnic lines.”
The report was issued one day before President Salva Kiir and rebel chief Riek Machar are due to meet for direct peace talks in Ethiopia.
