The "light at the end of the tunnel" for South Sudan is the implementation of the peace agreement reached this past summer.

That's according to the head of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), Ellen Margrethe Løj.

President Salva Kiir and opposition leaders signed the deal in August, aimed at bringing an end to nearly two years of conflict that has left thousands dead and forced millions from their homes.

In a briefing to the Security Council this week, South Sudan was described as being at a "critical juncture". Veronica Reeves spoke with Ms Løj and asked her what she made of the current situation on the ground.
