Humanitarian agencies say the crisis is worsening in South Sudan where fighting between rebels and the government has displaced hundreds of thousands of people.

The lack of security is also affecting thousands of Sudanese refugees living in settlements in disputed border areas.

Claire Doole reports from Geneva.
