Displacement caused by inter-ethnic violence and a stream of refugees fleeing conflict in neighbouring Sudan, are some of the challenges facing the new nation of South Sudan.

That assessment comes from UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos, who is on her first mission to the country.

Ms. Amos has visited South Sudan's troubled Jonglei State, where recent inter-ethnic violence has displaced thousands of people.

Richard Janda asked Ms. Amos her impressions of the newly independent nation.
