Peacekeepers from the UN Mission in South Sudan, UNMISS, are helping to provide a much needed sense of security to displaced people in a small town in the north of the country.

Unlike many displaced communities in other parts of South Sudan, these people are not fleeing the conflict which has troubled Africa's newest nation for over three years; instead they are refugees who have fled across the border from Sudan, just 30 kilometres to the north.

Daniel Dickinson reports from the town of Bunj.
