The SPLA soldiers suspected of alleged mass rape of women and young girls at Kubi area have been arrested, says Spokesperson.

Lul Ruai Koang, confirms the arrest to media, but did not mention the number of soldiers arrested and the penalties they will face.

He invited all media houses for a press briefing to get details about the number and the penalties.

Residents of Kubi village last month accused SPLA of mass rape of women and girls.

They also accused the soldiers of torturing young boys after a government official was killed along Juba-Nimule road.
