AFRICAN UNION PROBES S. SUDAN ATROCITIES

0

ADDIS ABABA: The African Union opened a commission of inquiry on Wednesday into atrocities carried out in the ongoing conflict in South Sudan. South Sudan’s government has been at war with rebel groups since December 15, when a clash between troops loyal to President Salva Kiir and those loyal to sacked vice president Riek Machar snowballed into full-scale fighting across the world’s newest nation. Former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo heads the five-member commission, which was set up to “investigate human rights violations and other abuses during the conflict by all parties”.
