UN Peacekeepers Fled, Used Tear Gas on South Sudan Civilians

A new report says United Nations peacekeepers fled their posts when fighting erupted in South Sudan’s capital in July, then used tear gas on frightened civilians who sought shelter within the U.N. base. The report states some peacekeepers refused orders to protect civilians during the chaos in Juba, and refused to respond to pleas for help as government soldiers looted and raped aid workers at a nearby Terrain compound. This reports adds to a growing list of incidents where peacekeepers have been accused of failing to carry out their mandate in South Sudan.
