South Sudan Desperate Scenes

South Sudan Desperate Scenes

In this photo taken Tuesday, May 6, 2014 and made available Tuesday, May 13, 2014, John Kawai Lam, 8, plays with a non-functioning automatic rifle that he found buried in the soil when he and his mother were cultivating the land in Nyal county, in oil-rich Unity State, South Sudan. Bodies stuffed in wells. Houses burned down. Children playing on military hardware. And young infants showing the skeletal outlines of severe hunger. These are the scenes from a remote part of South Sudan _ Leer _ where the aid group Doctors Without Borders has just begun feeding severely malnourished children about three months after the group’s hospital was destroyed in violence that has been ripping apart the country since December.
