The UN has said there is evidence of executions which have taken place in the South Sudanese town of Bentiu.

Hundreds of people have reportedly been killed in the town since last week after rebels took control.

The conflict in South Sudan began in December last year when forces loyal to the deposed vice president began fighting with government troops.

Stephanie Coutrix reports.
