Amnesty Welcomes Extension of UN Arms Embargo on SSudan [4:09]
Amnesty International has welcomed a Tuesday United Nations Security Council vote to extend an arms embargo first imposed on South Sudan in 2018, for one year. The U.K.-based rights watchdog says millions of civilians in South Sudan have suffered human rights violations by people with guns, including horrific cases of rape and other sexual violence. It says guns are used by government soldiers, groups allied to the opposition and other non-stated armed groups in conflict-related sexual violence in South Sudan. Nabeel Biajo spoke with Sikula Oniala, Amnesty International's researcher for South Sudan in Nairobi, Kenya.
