Witnesses and civilian leaders have accused South Sudanese soldiers of raping dozens of women and girls who sought refuge earlier this month from renewed fighting in the country’s ongoing civil conflict.
Reports described several assaults that occurred close to a UN camp in the capital, Juba, where many women and girls took shelter. Other incidents happened in other parts of Juba when people began to leave the camp in search of food as the conflict subsided.
