Maintaining law and order and ensuring the safety of people in UN bases in South Sudan is a challenging task according to the UN mission in the country, (UNMISS).

Ongoing conflict in South Sudan has driven over two million people from their homes.

One hundred and forty-three thousand are sheltering in so-called UN protection of civilian sites.

UNMISS has stepped up its security patrols in one of the sites in Bentiu, which it describes as a small town.

Regina Gorle asked UNMISS Spokesperson Ariane Quentier for more details.
