Fighting scars oil town in South Sudan

Residents endure displacement, looting, rape and violence as Malakal changes hands following government offensive.

    The South Sudanese government says it has recaptured a key oil town from rebels. But thousands of people in Malakal have been left homeless, and have suffered from looting, rape and violence.

    Hospitals, schools and churches have been transformed into refugee camps housing the displaced, struggling to provide for the huge number of those seeking safety.

    Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal reports from Malakal, at the centre of the latest fighting in South Sudan.
