Is there going to be a force on the vertical sides? The other two sides you can treat as individual wires and just add the forces.

Note the question says a rigid square loop, so will there not also be a couple acting ?

This should also provide a hint towards the 'vertical' sides, which is actually more tricky than the horizontal ones.
