Last week, dead bodies lined the streets leading to Bentiu, the capital of South Sudan’s oil-rich Unity State. Inside the city, more bodies were stacked inside mosques, churches and hospitals. Bulldozers were needed to clear the carnage.
In all, more than 400 civilians were killed in an attack the UN believes was orchestrated by South Sudanese rebels and carried out along ethnic lines.
It appears to be the bloodiest attack since conflict began in the new nation in December.
