GENEVA Dec 1 Ethnic cleansing is taking place
in some areas of South Sudan, where the stage is set for a
repeat of the Rwandan genocide, the head of the U.N. commission
of human rights in the country said in a statement on Thursday
at the end of a 10-day visit.
"There is already a steady process of ethnic cleansing
underway in several areas of South Sudan using starvation, gang
rape and the burning of villages; everywhere we went across this
country we heard villagers saying they are ready to shed blood
to get their land back," Yasmin Sooka said in the statement.
