Refugees from South Sudan are pouring into Sudan at a rate of 300 a day according to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Around 30,000 people have fled fighting in areas of Upper Nile State close to the border since mid-May.

The conflict in South Sudan is continuing as government forces battle with rebels loyal to the former Vice-President of the country.

Sebit William has been speaking to UNHCR's Nicolas Brass, who's based in Khartoum.

He began by asking how many refugees have so far been registered.
