There has been an influx of internally displaced people in South Sudan seeking shelter at the UN's so-called "Protection of Civilians sites", according to the UN Mission in the country (UNMISS).

The latest estimates indicate that 118,000 people are seeking shelter at six UNMISS sites nation-wide due to food insecurity and sporadic fighting.

This number reportedly continues to grow as a registration continues.

For more details, Regina Gorle spoke with Joe Contreras, a spokesperson for the UN Mission.
