'The suffering in South Sudan should shame us all' - Ex-UN rights chief

South Sudan, Africa’s 55th nation and the world’s youngest nation is suffering from an armed conflict that has been deepened by a famine and humanitarian crisis.

This according to Mary Robinson, a former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights ‘should shame’ the world. She was head of the UN rights body between 1997 to 2002.

Her position was contained in a statement by ‘The Elders,’ – a group of global leaders pushing for human rights and global peace.
