Doctors Without Borders restarts operations in Leer amid UN of warning of "catastrophic" famine unless fighting stops.

    Three months after their hospital was destroyed in South Sudan, Doctors without Borders says it has restarted operations there.

    The aid group is feeding severely malnourished children in the remote area of Leer.

    The move comes as the UN warns of a "catastrophic" famine, unless fighting between the army and rebels forces stops.
