"Serious human rights violations" are continuing in South Sudan and are more serious than previously thought according to a visiting UN Human Rights Commission.

Civil conflict erupted in the African country three years ago leading to the deaths of thousands of people and forcing almost three million more to flee their homes.

During their 10-day visit, the team of three commissioners met with government officials and visited communities displaced by conflict in the capital Juba and the towns of Malakal, Bentiu and Wau.

Philip Wani reports from South Sudan.
