South Sudan conflict: Charity warns of isolated children

Thousands of children are likely to have been separated from their families as a result of the latest violence in South Sudan, an aid agency has warned.

Save the Children says many children are surviving on their own in very remote areas.

Some have witnessed their parents being killed and their homes looted or destroyed.

Tens of thousands of people displaced by the fighting are living in makeshift camps.

Many are said to be traumatised and in desperate need of psychological help.

Wendy Urquhart reports.
