U.N. human rights experts called on Monday for an international investigation into horrific abuses committed in South Sudan, reiterating warnings of "ethnic cleansing" in the war-ravaged country.The experts meanwhile called for the U.N. to order "an international, impartial and independent investigation ... into the most serious crimes, including conflict-related sexual violence".They also urged the African Union (AU) to help ensure the swift establishment of a hybrid court for South Sudan, a key provision of a 2015 peace deal, adding that such a court needed to be operational within six to nine months. Citing reports, the U.N. experts said government soldiers, members of the National Security Service, police officers and pro-government militias appeared to be mainly to blame for the abuses.
