South Sudan became the world's newest state when it seceded from Sudan in 2011 but by December 2013 President Salva Kiir had sacked his entire cabinet and accused his former vice-president Riek Machar of instigating a coup, which sparked off violent clashes in the capital Juba.

Infighting immediately broke out within the presidential guard, sparking what has now become a brutal tribal and civil war that has pitted Machar's ethnic Nuer loyalists against the majority Dinka, who have sided with Kiir. Machar narrowly escaped assassination, fleeing to the deep bush as Kiir's troops razed his home and killed his bodyguards. And now the world's newest sovereign nation is in imminent danger of becoming a failed state. In February, journalists and filmmakers Robert Young Pelton and Tim Freccia ...

Everyday, when Nyabel Wal thinks of preparing food for her family of five, she has only one option: to harvest the wild grass that grows near her home. Subscribe to UNICEF here: http://bit.ly/1ltTE3m. Known locally as 'woor', the plant grows virtually everywhere in South Sudan, and it is believed to be the only weed sustaining the deteriorating lives of thousands of people in Upper Nile State from starvation, but it is far from enough to remain healthy. Nyabel’s baby, who was found to be suffering from severe acute malnutrition, is one of hundreds of thousands of children in South Sudan’s three most conflict-affected states who remains at imminent risk of death and disease.

(Juba, March 7, 2013) -- The government of South Sudan should increase efforts to protect girls from child marriage. The country's widespread child marriage exacerbates South Sudan's pronounced gender gaps in school enrollment, contributes to soaring maternal mortality rates, and violates the right of girls to be free from violence, and to marry only when they are able and willing to give their free consent. According to government statistics, close to half (48 percent) of South Sudanese girls between 15 and 19 are married, with some marrying as young as age 12. http://hrw.org/news/2013/02/28/south-sudan-end-widespread-child-marriage
