Aid agencies say malnutrition rates have doubled to 235,000 in impoverished nation blighted by ethnic conflicts.

    Ongoing violence in South Sudan could lead to a full-blown famine as aid agencies warn many people are at risk of starving to death.

    Children have been the hardest hit, with acute malnutrition rates doubling to about 235,000, as fighting between rival ethnic groups continues to devastate much of the impoverished country.
