(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) New York May 03 - UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay stated that the power struggle in South Sudan is pushing the nation towards "catastrophe." While Pillay said that her findings "reinforced the view" that the country's leaders have "embarked on a personal power struggle that has brought their people to the verge of catastrophe.

"The deadly mix of recrimination hate speech and revenge killings that has developed relentlessly over the past four and a half months seems to be reaching boiling point and I have been increasingly concerned that neither South Sudan's political leaders nor the international community at large seem to perceive quite how dangerous the situation now is" Pillay stated during a press conference after visiting South Sudan to investigate recent mass killings throughout the country.

The UN's aid chief in the country also asked for at the very least one month of "tranquility" to allow people to move freely and secure a good harvest for the end of 2014.
