South Sudan returnees still live in limbo

Many who returned from Sudan after South Sudan gained independence in 2011 still stuck in squalid camps.

    After South Sudan became independent in 2011, hundreds of thousands of South Sudanese became stranded as foreigners in Sudan.

    Many of them travelled back home to build new lives for themselves.

    A significant number of those returnees, however, are still stranded in temporary camps in a place called Renk, on the banks of the Nile River, where they are struggling to survive due to a short supply of basic needs.

    Al Jazeera's Anna Cavell reports from Renk, South Sudan.
