UN warns of huge rights abuse in S/Sudan
The UN high commissioner for human rights has warned of “huge” violations against civilians in South Sudan, as she led a team visiting the country’s capital, Juba.
Navi Pillay was accompanied on Tuesday by Adama Dieng, the UN’s special adviser for the prevention of genocide, and met Barnaba Marial Benjamin, South Sudan’s foreign minister, to discuss the crisis, the AP news agency reported.
“As we say in Africa, when two elephants fight it’s the grass that suffers.
Well, here I see civilians, ordinary people who are suffering and they are suffering huge human rights violations,” Pillay said.
