Rebel gunmen in South Sudan killed "hundreds" of civilians when they captured the oil town of Bentiu last week, the UN said Monday.

"More than 200 civilians were reportedly killed and over 400 wounded at the mosque," the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said in a statement.

Radio broadcasts had urged fighters to massacre a rival tribe sheltering at a church, mosque and hospital.
