A military judge in South Sudan on Thursday found 10 soldiers guilty of rape and murder in a violent rampage two years ago.
The trial concerned a July 2016 attack on Juba’s Terrain Hotel, home to aid workers from a number of international organisations.
The judgment was delivered in a military courtroom filled with diplomats, aid workers and officials.
It happened as rival forces in the civil war clashed in the city.
Three days of fighting in the city killed at least 73 people, including more than 20 internally displaced people who had sought UN protection. Two peacekeepers also died.
A UN report into the hotel attack accused UN peacekeepers of failing in their duty to protect civilians.
