South Sudan children feel conflict's pain

Most teachers fled, and with children juggling school and fending for themselves, just being in class is good enough.

    Monday marks a year when a political dispute in South Sudan escalated to an ethnic war resulting in the deaths of more than 10,000 people. The UNICEF says children have suffered the most, with an estimated 750,000 displaced. Most teachers fled, and with children juggling school and fending for themselves, just being in class is good enough. Many children are also being used by armed forces on both sides of the conflict.
