Stranded South Sudanese strive to return home

Floods worsen conditions for thousands who have been stranded in camps in Sudan's capital.

    The independence of South Sudan in 2011 brought joy to millions of Southern Sudanese.

    However, thousands of others have been stranded in makeshift camps in neighbouring Sudan, and are still waiting for buses to take them to their home country.

    Recent floods that devastated parts of the country have made conditions worse for refugees.
