South Sudan Troops Suffocated 60 Men, Boys, Amnesty Reports

The global human rights watchdog Amnesty International has accused South Sudan military forces of suffocating 60 men and boys in a shipping container.

In a report released Thursday, the London-based organization called for the perpetrators to be prosecuted.

Amnesty International says that in October 2015, government soldiers rounded up more than 60 men and boys in Leer, a town in the northern Unity state, and locked them in a shipping container on the grounds of a Catholic church.
