President of South Sudan warns government troops against harassing Civilians

The president of South Sudan, Salva Kiir, has ordered government troops to stop harassing civilians. In a statement he issued on Christmas vigil he expressed concern about the current fighting between his soldiers and the followers of Riek Machar. He called upon Mr. Machar to stop fighting and put national interests first. He condemned the tribal killings that have taken place in the last one week and promised measures against undisciplined elements in the government army. His appeal came after United Nations officials found a mass grave on the outskirt of the capital, Juba, and another one in the town of Bentiu in Unity State which is under Machar’s troops.
