Crisis in South Sudan worsens: OCHA

• Humanitarian organizations are working around the clock to supply life-saving support to a growing influx of refugees entering South Sudan, says the UN humanitarian agency (OCHA). The refugees are fleeing fighting and food shortages in Sudan's Blue Nile and Southern Kordofan states. OCHA says most of the arrivals have been travelling for weeks through areas of armed conflict, on foot and with little food or water.
