UN chief Antonio Guterres says he's appalled at a recent report on the atrocities committed in the country. The UK embassy has also expressed horror at the brutal violence. More details have been emerging following a UN report on the latest violence committed during the country's ongoing civil war. The report states more than 2-hundred and 30-civilians were killed over a five-week period earlier this year. Some were hanged from trees, others burnt alive in their homes. The UN report blames South Sudan's government forces and their allies for the violence. The UN is calling for those responsible to be brought to justice. The report places the latest peace deal in doubt. South Sudan's rival parties recently signed a ceasefire, which has already been violated by both sides.
