UN Monitors Propose Sanctions On S.Sudan Leaders

The United Nations sanctions monitors have suggested that President Salva Kiir and the leader of the SPLM in Opposition, Dr. Riek Machar should be sanctioned over atrocities committed in the country.
This comes a day after Dr Machar met president Museveni and expressed total commitment to restoring peace in his country.
According to Juba- based Eye Radio, the monitors say the atrocities have been directed by or undertaken with the knowledge of senior individuals in the highest level of government and within the opposition.
In an annual report, the panel of UN monitors says President Salva Kiir and Dr Riek Machar maintain command responsibility for their respective forces; and are therefore directly to blame for killing civilians.
They also recommend that the Security Council imposes an arms embargo on South Sudan.
