South Sudan facing food crisis

Poor crops and tensions with North force Juba to import high-cost supplies from southern neighbour Uganda.

    Ongoing clashes with Khartoum over the countries' contested border area have halted the import of cheap food goods from the North, leaving Juba to rely on high-cost goods imported from southern neighbour Uganda.

    Another full-scale war between the two rival Sudans would make an already tough situation much worse.

    Al Jazeera's Peter Greste reports from Juba.
