S Sudan's 'lost children' flee to Kenya

Aid workers say as much as 80 percent of refugees crossing into neighbouring Kenya are children.

    A UN human rights official has told Al Jazeera that parts of South Sudan have been reduced to ghost towns.

    Thousands have died in weeks of fighting between government forces and rebels loyal to former Vice President Riek Machar. 

    The violence has forced thousands to flee, and aid workers say many of those refugees crossing into Kenya are children.
