In South Sudan, the United Nations says pro-government forces killed at least 114 civilians in the last six months of last year in and around the town of Yei. The U.N. also accused the pro-government soldiers of raping and torturing civilians. South Sudan has been wracked by civil war since 2013, and the U.N. says parts of the country have entered a famine, with 100,000 people at risk of starvation.
