South Sudanese troops raped and killed hundreds in recent attacks, U.N. investigation finds

In its investigation, the United Nations found government forces and
those aligned with them killed at least 232 civilians and raped 120
women and girls in a recent spate of attacks on opposition-held
villages, in what may amount to war crimes. Dozens of those killed —
including children, the disabled and the elderly — were burned alive. At
least one of the gang-rape victims was as young as 6. Opposition troops
were also responsible for killing a number of civilians, and the
investigation identified three individuals who the report says bear the
“greatest responsibility” for the violent incidents the United Nations
documented.
