S.Sudan's descent into horror as civil war enters 2nd year

South Sudanese children from the Dinka ethnic group pose at cattle camp in the town of Yirol, in central South Sudan on February 12, 2014War in South Sudan is worsening with “extreme violence” and growing hunger, rights groups warned Monday, one year on since the start of conflict in which tens of thousands have died. Campaigners say South Sudan is locked into conflict, with the bloodshed that erupted in Juba exactly a year ago having set off a cycle of retaliatory massacres across large swathes of the country. “Twelve months on from the outbreak of this war, it is hard to fathom that worse could be yet to come,” South Sudanese peace activist and priest James Ninrew said. Fighting broke out in South Sudan, the world’s youngest nation, when President Salva Kiir accused his sacked deputy Riek Machar of attempting a coup.
