South Sudanese seek shelter from violence

Residents seek cover amid fears that political tensions and ethnic rivalries could spark a civil war.

    Foreigners and some locals are being evacuated from conflict-wracked South Sudan, but many people who cannot leave are finding shelter in UN compounds.

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from the city.
