War in South Sudan

The Civilian Toll

The eleven-year-old conflict in south Sudan continues to bring famine, pestilence and death to southerners (over one million people have died as a result of the war). This suffering is caused by gross abuses of human rights by the government and its Sudan Popular Armed Forces and the two factions of the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Army. The war-related abuses include indiscriminate attacks on the civilian population, looting of cattle and food and burning of villages.
