Amnesty (2014) Nowhere Safe: Civilians under Attack in South Sudan

This report focuses on violations of international human rights and humanitarian law committed by all parties to the non-international armed conflict that broke out in South Sudan in December 2013. It is based on information gathered by Amnesty International from primary and secondary sources. Amnesty International delegates conducted a research mission to South Sudan in March 2014. They visited Juba, the capital of South Sudan; Bor town in Jonglei state; Bentiu town in Unity state; and Malakal town in Upper Nile state. Delegates interviewed over one hundred victims and witnesses; and spoke with local, national and state government officials; members of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) and South Sudan Police Service; and representatives of opposition forces. Amnesty International delegates also met with representatives of national and international non-governmental organizations, UNMISS officials and members of the diplomatic community in South Sudan.
