Humanitarian support for ransacked South Sudan towns

These orphaned children received food from WFP after a humanitarian mission arrived in the violence-stricken town of Pibor in South Sudan's Jonglei State

The humanitarian aid effort has been stepped up in two towns in South Sudan towns which were attacked by a group of armed youth.

Pibor town and Likuangole, home to the majority Murle ethnic group were attacked by 6000 men from the Lou Nuer tribe during the past 10 days.

They have since withdrawn but have left what's been described as a grim humanitarian situation.

Donn Bobb asked the United Nations humanitarian chief in South Sudan, Lise Grande what the UN is doing to help.
