South Sudan Famine Warnings

In this Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014 file photo, 7-month-old boy Dhieu Ding Chol, left, and 5-month-old boy Thuch Jong Kuch, right, are held by their mothers as they receive treatment for dehydration, vomiting and diarrhea, likely caused by the lack of any sanitation where they are now living, at a clinic run by Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) set up in a school building in the town of Awerial, South Sudan. The U.N.’s top official for human rights Navi Pillay told a news conference in South Sudan’s capital Juba on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 that the country is on the verge of catastrophe because of a deadly mix of recrimination, hate speech and revenge killings since December and that she is appalled by the apparent lack of concern by leaders in South Sudan over the risk of a potential famine.
