Thousands of children in war-torn in South Sudan have been deliberately killed or abducted to fight in the nearly eight month-long conflict, African Union experts said Friday.More than 900 children have been abducted in the eastern war zone state of Jonglei, while there are confirmed cases of "rape of both girls and boys," the committee said in a statement.In an April attack in Bor when gunmen sprayed civilians sheltering in a U.N. peacekeeping base with bullets, 12 children were killed, including a baby just three months old.Children were suffering more than even during the 1983-2005 war that paved the way for South Sudan's independence, the AU team said.
