South Sudan rebels pin UPDF on killing civilians

 

 

The South Sudan freedom fighters have accused Uganda soldiers, UPDF and the South Sudan government troops of committing atrocities against civilians including rape, murder and displacement of people.

 Thousands of people have been killed in clashes pitting troops loyal to President Salva Kiir against rebels supporting Riek Machar, who was sacked as vice president in July.

Peter Gadet, the army commander in Bor says the government troops and its allies slaughtered many people in hospitals and homes around Juba.

He says the government of South Sudan is massacring civilians in the capital, Juba, and of flattening the oil-producing Unity state’s capital of Bentiu.
