South Sudan massacres last year may be war crimes – U.N

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Hundreds of civilians were massacred in two separate incidents in South Sudan last year in which victims were targeted for their ethnicity, nationality or political views, possibly amounting to war crimes, the United Nations said in a report on Friday.

The 33-page report comes after the U.N. Security Council called for an investigation of April 2014 killings in South Sudan’s oil hub, Bentiu. The U.N. peacekeeping mission in South Sudan, which carried out the probe, also looked at an incident in the same month in the town of Bor.
