SSHRC, 2014/03. Interim Report on South Sudan Internal Conflict December 15, 2013 - March 15, 2014 [Report] South Sudan Human Rights Commission. Accessed online.

This 13-page report by the Human Rights Commission finds that there was 'mass violation of human rights'. It details some of this, mostly without being able to attribute responsibility further than to say there was 'loss of control over forces by the government and rebel force commanders respectively'. It insists on facing up to the problem of ethnic hatred rather than denying that killings were ethnically motivated. It urges further investigation by the Government and AU commissions of inquiry, leading to prosecutions. And it doubts government claims that 100 SPLA suspects were detained.
