It's necessary to "cling to every little sign of hope" in South Sudan as the country continues to suffer civil unrest and insecurity; that's the view of the head of UNMISS, the UN peacekeeping mission there.

The country, which gained its independence in 2011 has suffered from conflict for almost three years.

Thousands of people have died and more than two million have fled their homes.

Head of UNMISS Ellen Løj was in New York on Thursday, briefing the Security Council and spoke to Daniel Dickinson just ahead of the meeting.
