A "massive" emergency operation has been launched in South Sudan following inter-ethnic violence in Jonglei state.

The Government of South Sudan declared the area a disaster zone after 6000 Lou Nuer youths went on a rampage attacking rival Murle people.

Around 60,000 people are now in need of humanitarian aid.

Donn Bobb asked the United Nations humanitarian chief in South Sudan, Lise Grande for an update on the situation.
