Arms embargo needed to stem South Sudan war: HRW

South Sudanese soldiers' rifles are seen during a parade near the John Garang Mausoleum in Juba, on July 30, 2014Rival forces in South Sudan’s civil war should face sanctions and an arms embargo, Human Rights Watch said on Friday, reporting “extraordinary acts of cruelty” it said amounted to war crimes. “The scale and gravity of the abuses warrant a comprehensive arms embargo on South Sudan, as well as targeted sanctions on individuals responsible for serious violations of international law,” HRW said. The United States and the European Union have already slapped penalties on three senior army commanders from the government and opposition, while the regional IGAD bloc have suggested they could follow suit if progress was not made. US Secretary of State John Kerry warned Tuesday the international community was moving towards a “final ultimatum” to warring parties, after meeting South Sudanese President Salva Kiir in Washington.
