South Sudan clashes overwhelm hospitals

Medical facilities in South Sudan are being severely stretched as fighting continues in the two key oil-producing states of Jonglei and Unity.

In the military hospital in Juba, more than 1,000 patients are being treated in a facility with 130 ward beds.

The UN is warning that the people caught up in the conflict in Bor, the capital of Jonglei state, are in dire need of food, water, sanitary facilities and medical supplies.
