More than 350 civilians were slaughtered by opposition forces in the South Sudanese towns of Bentiu and Bor in April last year, according to a UN report released on Friday.

Human rights investigators from the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) have been probing the two incidents committed during the conflict in the new African nation.

South Sudan has been embroiled in a conflict between government and rebel forces since December 2013.

To find out more about the report, David Lukan spoke with Joe Contreras, Spokesperson for UNMISS.
