The South Sudanese army has been accused of rights abuses in the two-year civil war, but arrests are rare.

The Anadolu Agency (Turkey) reports:
At least 121 government soldiers have been arrested on suspicion of committing crimes including rape, gang rape, and looting of civilians during the recent clashes in South Sudan's capital Juba.
"The army general command detained 12 soldiers due to rights abuses, including two who have committed crimes against their colleagues," army spokesman Brig, Gen. Lul Ruai Koang told Anadolu Agency.
