South Sudan sexual violence ‘rampant,’ 2-year-old raped: U.N.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Rape and other forms of sexual violence by all sides in South Sudan’s civil war have become so widespread that a two-year-old child was among the victims, the U.N. special representative on sexual violence in armed conflict said on Monday.

“In my 30 years of experience, I’ve never witnessed anything like what I saw in Bentiu,” Zainab Hawa Bangura told reporters about a recent trip to the northern town, one of South Sudan’s regions worst hit by the conflict.
