South Sudan fighting kills hundreds

The UN says thousands of youths from a South Sudanese ethnic group involved in a dispute with a rival community have been repelled by government troops.

Long-running disputes between the Lou Nuer and Murle ethnic groups have turned violent in recent days, with more than 150 people killed and thousands displaced by the clashes.

Daniel Griffiths reports.
