Fighting comes to Awerial, South Sudan

On the morning of January 22nd while out to photograph food distribution at the IDP camp containing over 84,000 people, three badly wounded SPLA government solders arrived at a clinic in Minkamen, Awerial, South Sudan. Fighting had broken out that same morning 25km south of the IDPs, once again causing people who had already fled their homes to run deeper into the bush for safety.  A few hours later over 100 aid workers evacuated the area.
