New A.U. Report Outlines Atrocities Of War In South Sudan

The Guardian: South Sudan: ‘a level of human suffering I have never seen anywhere else’
“…[People in South Sudan’s Malakal protection of civilians (PoC) camp] are hiding from a war that has killed tens of thousands of people, displaced 2.2 million inside and outside the country, left 4.6 million severely food insecure, and decimated an already weak economy. The fighting has often slid into horror and depravity over the past 22 months. On Wednesday, a long-awaited report from the African Union (A.U.) laid out the atrocities that have accompanied the conflict, from rape and murder to the mutilation of dead bodies, forced cannibalism, and the existence of mass graves…” (Jones, 10/28).
