Another story that is being overlooked, another time the international community prefers to turn the other way and look forward to summer holiday bookings, the six-ess silly season, the sun, sand, sea and sex package. Meanwhile in South Sudan, women and little girls are being raped and killed… by little boys wielding automatic weapons.Two years after the conflict in South Sudan exploded, UNICEF warns that the situation has spun out of control and if anything, has got worse over time. This week\’s latest atrocity: dozens of children abducted, killed, raped and tortured, many of them girls and young women and the perpetrators in some cases are reported to be teenage boys.The alert was given on Tuesday by Jonathan Veitch, UNICEF Representative in South Sudan, speaking from the capital city, Juba, claiming that there is “a deliberate targeting of children” and that over the past two weeks, dozens of children were killed, raped or abducted in Unity State. One girl managed to escape to a UN Mission clutching her eight-month-old twins, and claimed that the assailants were all boys aged sixteen to seventeen who had burst into the village and opened fire on everyone.
