South Sudan 'failed to stop ethnic fighting'

UN criticises Juba for its handling of tribal conflict in Jonglei state that has left 900 people dead.

    The United Nations has criticised South Sudan's government for its handling of ethnic fighting in Jonglei State.

    It says the army has not been able to prevent the deaths of about 900 people during a wave of cattle raids between rival clans.

    The deadly clashes between the Nuer and the Murle tribe have left more than 60,000 people homeless, stripped of their livelihoods and dependent on aid.

    Al Jazeera’s Peter Greste reports.
