Nowhere Safe: Civilians Under Attack in South Sudan

Date: 8.5.14 Source: Amnesty International
"The conflict in South Sudan has devastated the lives of millions of people. Since
the outbreak of violence on 15 December 2013, forces fighting on behalf of the
government and those allied with the opposition under the leadership of former Vice
President Riek Machar have shown a total disregard for international human rights
and humanitarian law. They have deliberately killed civilians; executed captured
fighters; abducted and sexually assaulted women and girls; arbitrarily detained
civilians, some of whose whereabouts are still unknown; burned down homes;
damaged and destroyed medical facilities; and looted public and private property as
well as food stores and humanitarian aid."
