Torture, rape "have become the norm" in South SudanListen /
Torture, rape, unlawful killings, arrests and detentions "have become the norm" in South Sudan, as the human rights situation continues to deteriorate.
That's the stark conclusion of a report by the UN Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan, presented to the Human Rights Council in Geneva on Tuesday.
The world's youngest country has been mired in conflict since 2013 between rival factions, which has left hundreds of thousands dead and millions displaced.
The commission was appointed last June to report on the human rights situation and make recommendations for improvements.
Team leader Yasmin Sooka, told Nelson Lwak, that ethnic cleansing was "definitely underway" in parts of the country.
