These are some of the atrocities revealed in 14 reports, seen by the Associated Press, that have not yet been released by the independent body charged with monitoring a failed cease-fire imposed in December in South Sudan, where civil war is now well into its fifth year.The reports should have been released last month at a meeting led by the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission but South Sudan's government did not attend, preventing the accounts of abuses from being made public because there was not a quorum.South Sudan's government didn't respond to multiple requests for comment on why it didn't attend last month's meeting.The unpublished reports describe violations by both government and opposition forces but most of the accounts blame government troops for instigating attacks and deliberately targeting civilians.Government soldiers blocked the door and set it on fire, burning the children to death, one report said.
