The deliberate suffocating of over 60 men and boys stuffed into a baking hot shipping container in South Sudan is a war crime, Amnesty International said Thursday.The killings, which the government has denied, took place in a Catholic church compound in the central town of Leer in October 2015, Amnesty said.Amnesty's report, based on 23 eyewitnesses who saw the men and boys forced into the container with their hands tied or saw the bodies later dragged away and dumped, provides more details and attributes blame for the killings.The earlier JMEC report said that those found alive were then killed, and that the only survivor was an eight-year old boy.
