3.3 million South Sudanese in need of food aid

Recent violence in South Sudan has resulted in large-scale displacement and has pushed the food security situation to crisis levels

Up to 3.3 million people could need food aid in South Sudan according to the UN's World Food Programme.

Poor rainfall and displacements caused by conflict have contributed to what's been described as a crisis.

South Sudan is also expecting an influx of up to half a million people from its northern neighbour, Sudan.

Patrick Maigua asked Chris Nikoi, WFP’s country director in South Sudan's capital, Juba, why there is a shortage of food.
