South Sudan's oil economy should be examined by the U.N. Human Rights Council for evidence that oil interests are responsible for war crimes, a member of the U.N. Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan said on Wednesday.

Andrew Clapham, a member of the three-person panel that will report to the Council on March 12, also said that the commission was outraged by reports of ongoing fighting between government forces and the National Salvation Front in the Yei River area, which had displaced thousands.
