Situation Worsening in South Sudan; More that 1 Million Homeless

The situation in South Sudan continues to grow steadily worse for those caught up in fighting that has gone on for three months now. According to the United Nations, more than one million South Sudanese have had to flee from their homes since the fighting began. The UN reports more than 1 million people are displaced inside of the country while 800 thousand refugees have fled to neighboring countries including Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Sudan. Government troops are battling with forces loyal to a former vice president. In all, according to UN figures, more than 3.7 million people are classified as being “at high risk.” While the humanitarian situation worsens, peace talks being held in the Ethiopian capital remain stillborn.
