The people of South Sudan “are suffering”

15 December 2015

The people of South Sudan “are suffering”; that’s according to Ellen Løj, the head of the UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).

Ms Løj was speaking ahead of Tuesday’s Security Council meeting, during which the mandate of UNMISS was extended through next July.

The country, which only gained its independence in 2011, has been plagued by conflict for nearly two years now; during which time thousands have been killed, and millions displaced from their homes.

Sebit William spoke to Ms Løj and asked her to describe the current dynamics in the country.
