UK goes beyond UN to say South Sudan violence ‘is now genocide’

The violence in South Sudan is now genocide that is being perpetrated along tribal lines, International Development Secretary Priti Patel has said.

She said in an interview that there are “massacres taking place, people’s throats being slit”.

Ms Patel, who visited South Sudan this week, said there is a “scorched earth policy,” with villages being burned down, women being raped, and food being used as a weapon of war.

She described the situation in South Sudan as “absolutely abhorrent and inhumane”.

South Sudan fell into civil war in December 2013.
