Serious human rights abuses, including abductions and gang rape of women and girls have been committed by government forces and their allied militia in South Sudan's Unity State.

That's according to a report released by the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) on Tuesday.

The Mission says its staff interviewed 115 victims and eyewitnesses from five counties in Unity State where the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) launched a major offensive against armed opposition forces in late April.
