South Sudan militias raped women in lieu of wages: UN
March 11, Khartoum: The United Nations said that militias allied to the South Sudanese army have been allowed to rape women in lieu of wages during fighting against rebel forces.
According to UN, investigators found that 1,300 women were raped last year in the oil-rich Unity state alone.
In a separate report, Amnesty International says more than 60 men and boys were suffocated in a shipping container by government forces.
The government denies its army targeted civilians but says it is investigating.
