Warring forces on both sides of South Sudan's brutal civil war have likely carried out crimes against humanity, the UN said Thursday, a day ahead of planned peace talks.The UN's report was released amid preparations for talks slated between President Salva Kiir and rebel chief Riek Machar in the Ethiopian capital to stem almost five months of bloodshed.Although starting as a personal rivalry between Kiir and Machar, the conflict has seen the army divide along ethnic lines, pitting members of Kiir's Dinka tribe against Machar's Nuer.One Nuer man recounted to UN rights workers how army troops raided houses and shot civilians in Juba.The conflict erupted on December 15 with Kiir accusing Machar of attempting a coup.
