The United Nations accused the rebels of hunting down men, women and children a week ago in a hospital, church and mosque in the capital of the oil-producing Unity state and then killing them based on ethnicity and nationality. He also accused the U.N. mission of "cheap propaganda" to win favor with South Sudanese President Salva Kiir.
