U.N. reports rape and killings in attacks on South Sudan towns

At least 28 towns and villages have been attacked in South Sudan’s oil-producing Unity State during almost two weeks of fighting, with reports of killings, rape, arson and looting, a U.N. human rights official in Geneva said on Tuesday. The world’s newest state, which declared independence from Sudan in 2011, was plunged into conflict nearly 18 months ago between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and rebels allied with his former deputy, Riek Machar.
