Martha Anger, refugee from South Sudan: “They opened fire on us”

DZAIPI/ ADJUMANI, 16 January 2014 (IRIN) – Since widespread conflict broke out in South Sudan in mid-December 2013, following what the government called a “failed coup attempt”, the UN estimates that some 413,000 people have been internally displaced, with thousands of others fleeing into neighbouring countries. The total number of people displaced is likely higher, as aid agencies have limited information outside the main population centres, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
