A UN report reveals that militants of the South Sudanese army were given the permission to rape women instead of paying them for fighting rebels.

According to the report 1300 women were raped last year in Unity State alone.

The army operated a "scorched earth" policy to deliberately target civilians for killing and rape, which amounted to war crimes, the UN said.

However, the government had denied that the militants are targeting civilians but promised an investigation into the matter.
